After many films and imagined clichés, thie Monument Valley is a must that will not deceive anybody. Take a Navajo led tour, as they drive you for more that 3 hrs around the valley, it is very nice, interesting and worth the price you have to pay.

This drive is not nearly as good as Monument Valley. Keep driving to Monument Valley for a much more impressive site.

We had never heard of Valley of the Gods until we drove by the brown sign at the unimpressive entrance & thought the name sounded cool enough to investigate. We were on a 4,500 mile road trip, and it wasn't on our itinerary, but I'm SO thankful we turned around and drove into the park. Oh my heart... it was... More

Extremely beautiful and remote - we spent an entire day driving and hiking in the canyons on the 17 mile road.

I found this spot a few years ago while researching geocaches in the area. I made sure the 17 mile dirt road was on our list of things to see on tour of the Southwest. We had the place to ourselves and the scenery was fantastic. You really felt like you were out in the old western movies as you... More

See it at dawn or at sunset. As beautiful as Monument Valley. Great for trail runners. I ran it at dawn two mornings in a row with no cars in sight.

We rode near the Valley of the Gods on motorcycles in the early morning hours of June 21st. It was a beautiful sight even though there was smoke from wildfires in CA, giving the monuments an eerie appearance. We didn't make the trip through the monuments because of the gravel roads, but we could see many of them from the... More

We came down 261 from 95 and the view is awesome. 261 is a little hairy on the motorcycles so be careful, but the view is something to behold. There is a great stop at the top. We have been this way 3 times, once from the bottom up and the other two from the top. Do this at least... More
