The Best Stops To Make In Monument Valley
Right here at the Monument Valley Visitor Centre is where you’ll find the classic view of the valley
If you have time, pick a few small trails to walk. The Wildcat trail was flat and easy
I wanted to get up close with the rocks and this hike was perfect for that
John Ford point is another of those famous spots. Complete with a horse for your photo op pleasure (yes the horse gets breaks!)
The North Window overlook and hike was one of my favourite things in MV. I wish I’d stuck around for sunset
All along the 17 mile scenic road that goes through MV, you’ll get great views. It’s best to have a high clearance vehicle but not necessary
Make sure to check out Camel Butte on your drive. It’s best to have a list of the stops you want to make so you don’t miss them
One of the most rewarding things I did while in MV was take a tour with Navajo Spirit Tours
We were able to go to sacred places which are not accessible without a guide. It was so interesting to hear about the culture and history of the area
Sunset at Artist Point was stunning and well worth a stop
And just outside MV, you can’t miss running up and down the road at Forest Gump Point like in the movie!
Respect this sacred land when you visit. Covid has closed the park for the time being but hopefully will open again soon!
