Valley of the Gods Trail

Valley of the Gods Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This graded dirt road winds through a valley of eroded rock formations not unlike the better-known Monument Valley, just over the border in Arizona. The trail passes such imaginatively named formations as the Setting Hen, Rooster Butte, and Rudolph and Santa Claus!

Special Attractions: Eroded rock formations along an easy valley trail; The Setting Hen, the Rooster, Balanced Rock, and more rock formations; Spectacular backcountry campsites. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."

Great trail! Majestic scenery, a must see! easy drive on a graded dirt road becomes very slippery & muddy with a little rain.
