1. The Monument Valley Scenic Drive:
The Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park has a beautiful 17-mile loop road & it's worth visiting.
Cost: $8 per person
You can self-drive this loop it’s a little bumpy & dusty, but we did it with our rental car with no problems.
If it rains, this road can become impassable so check the weather before your visit.
Stops along the way:
•The wildcat Trail: This hike is a 3.2-mile loop that circles around the Mitten Buttes and Merrick Butte & offers incredible views.
•The Mittens & Merrick Butte: This stop is a great spot to get up close to these monuments.
•The Three Sisters: Opposite the Mittens, you’ll find the Three Sisters. These three finger-like stones rise out of the red rock.
•John Ford’s point: This is our favorite and most iconic spot on the loop. Named after film director John Ford, who filmed Stagecoach. For 5$ you can even take an iconic shot on a horse.
•Totem pole: It is an incredible and remarkable rock feature. It is the tallest spire in the world at a prominence of 381 feet.
•Artist’s point: Another popular scenic point.
