Valley of the Gods

Valley of the Gods Professional Review and Guide

"Valley of the Gods is a prelude to Monument Valley and the Four Corners Area, where space is open and endless, and where the air is filled with a lucid sense of remoteness. Dispersed throughout these perpetually hapless desert plains are rock features of positive relief that resemble imaginary animals, troops of soldiers displaced from their platoons, or statues of exalted gods. More of these fanciful figures will be liberated in time as erosion slowly but relentlessly attacks the burnt umber ramparts of Cedar Mesa.

Got a mountain bike tandem? Break it out for this loop and you’ll click away the miles with ease. Tread: 16.5 miles of light duty dirt road mixed with sand and rock double track, 10.5 miles of pavement. Tack on 7 miles more of pavement for the Goosenecks Overlook."
