Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

Awe Inspired Wonder of the World

Monument Valley, UT

Active mask mandate on the Navajo Nation. Masks are required for both visitors and residents. Parks across the Navajo Nation is limited to a 50% capacity at this time. To ensure you are able to visit, please make reservations with a tour guide prior to visiting the Navajo Nation. Walk-in’s may not be available.

Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park (Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii, meaning Valley of the Rocks), is one of the centerpieces of beauty on Navajoland and is one of the world’s most recognized landscapes.

Beautiful red sandstones push skyward (400 to 1,000 feet) from the vast expanse of desert floor, creating a striking set of formations that stand together against an umbrella of blue skies. This enchanting earthscape is so inspiring and magnificent that it is one of the most photographed sites in America – and has become synonymous with our vision of the great southwest.

  1. In 1849, the first United States militia to explore the area were disgusted by the scenery. The valley was “as desolate and repulsive-looking a country as can be imagined,” Capt. John G. Walker wrote in Executive Documents printed by order of the United States Senate.
  2. In the 1930s, John Ford started filming Westernized movies here, launching the landscape into international fame.
  3. The size of the park is 91,696 acres in Utah/Arizona and is at an elevation of 5,564 feet above sea level.
  4. There is a 17-mile loop road that takes tourists around the park. Additionally, the park has two trails for hiking and 11 lookout points.

Per Vehicle Pass: $20 per non-commercial vehicle up to 4 people ($8 each additional passenger)

Monument Valley Drive: OPEN 6:30AM-7:30PM, last entry at 5pm. (All times are MST/Denver)

Per Individual Pass: $10 per walk-in, bicycle, or motorcycle

Commercial Pass: (based on capacity of vehicle): 1-4 Passengers: $35 (additional $8/person)

Note: General Admission Passes do not include Backcountry Permits. If you wish to hike and/or camp beyond the park, you must purchase a permit before entering. Backcountry Permits are for hiking and camping on designated trails and campgrounds. If you are caught hiking or camping without a Backcountry Permit, or in unauthorized territory, additional fees will apply.
