The trail to the overlook is not difficult but would not be easy for those who cannot trek over lots of rock and rough-hewn steps. The signage needs replacing due to weathering destroying the acrylic covering.

We booked with Antelope House Tours (Adam Teller). This was an all day tour with lunch at the ruins consisting of Fry bread and a bowl of wonderful beans. You can purchase other goodies. Our guide was great, willing to stop whenever we wanted to take pictures & he was full of history & folklore. It started raining a lot... More

I viewed this ruin from above on the South Rim Drive and by Jeep tour through the canyon. I would suggest both because it's amazing to see the remains of such a great society of the past.

View during the North rim drive or during your canyon tour. You will need your binoculars to get an up close look at the antelope illustrations on the walls. They are exceptional and must be seen to be appreciated. Don't miss this ruin.

Well restored petroglyphs on canyon wall are quite exciting as they are so clear. Only viewable from the canyon itself.

Antelope House Ruins overlook is one of the first stops along the North Rim drive. To get to the overlook, walk to the far end of the parking lot and follow the rock lined trail to the lookout point. The vantage point from the top of the cliff is a awesome as the full canyon is layed out below you.... More

The Puebloan ruins are a good stop on a Canyon del Muerto tour. You should be aware that the paintings of antelopes and other faux pictographs are not ancient and were done by moderns. Some refreshments are available at this location.

Very close to the road, easy to walk to lookout. Bring binoculars or telescope to see the formations and ruins up close. Beautiful scenery.

Coming this far west we had to take the tour definitely glad we did it. Once-in-a-lifetime experience. It's amazing how people lived back then and still do today.

Take a Jeep tour here so you can really appreciate the site and enjoy the canyon at its base, too. The tours require a Navajo guide and are about 3 hours long.
