The reward: spectacular panoramic views of the Valley that will leave you speechless... Let the serene beauty of Monument Valley captivate you from a bird's-eye perspective.

As an option, cookouts and overnight camping 'in the wild' in Monument Valley or Mystery Valley, and even on top of the mesa can be arranged!

Monument Valley sits on a high-desert plateau (5564 feet above sea-level) and it has a desert climate. In the months of June through September hot, dry heat will make it necessary to bring along plenty of drinking water, a cap or hat, sunscreen lotion and sunglasses.

 



5 Hrs. trail. Category: Strenuous. We hike and climb a switch back trail, a 1200ft (400m) elevated mesa: one of the highest plateaus in Monument Valley. As we go about the trail, we'll show you the evidence of different geological events, and how the sediment sandstone developed through eons of time. This 'sland in the sky' mes has a view that is so spectacular that it puts people in awe as they wander about, overlooking the Valley. The crystal-clear atmosphere shows the valley floor as it stretches as far as the eye can see. It seems that you are saluting the spires, buttes and mesas that surround the area, as they are standing proudly saluting you back for your accomplishment. Every angle, every corner you turn, the impact is of a one-of-a-kind beauty. The colors of nature let you imagine and create your own conclusions. For this is 'The land of room enough and time enough'

6 Hrs. trail. Category: Strenuous. (Also known as the Anasazi Trail). Imagine, unveiling the secrets of the old legacy of the Anasazis.

We will take you back to the past and unfold the mysteries as actual physical evidence of their past is revealed by the authentic rock arts where their sacred grounds still remain. As we hike alongside the painted walls and age-old dwellings, stories begin to slowly unfold. Silently we begin to discover and imagine the lives of these ancient forefathers. Following the prehistoric trails we also discover the eye catching natural bridges, arching across the desert floor, delicately connecting the massive sandstone rocks. Mystery Valley is like the Undiscovered Country, where not many have gone and which few have witnessed.
