Trail Information


Valley of the Gods is a scenic sandstone valley that although only a quarter of the size of its big brother, Monument Valley, offers many similar stunning views along the route. The road through the valley is smooth for the most part, offering many places to pull off to take in the amazing sights. Many of the imposing rock formations are named, so use your imagination as you tour the area and see if you can spot formations such as "Lady In The Bathtub" or "Rooster Butte."

Finally got to check this one off my list; it was a very easy and scenic drive through some very impressive formations with some great areas to camp. There was also a storm that rolled through that made for some cool pictures.

As long as this trail is dry, anything can drive through this trail. We took ascended up the Moki Dugway where you'll have an impressive view of the Valley of the Gods, so make sure to stop to admire the beauty. You can take little dirt roads with cliff overlooks. Afterwards, we continued our adventures Eastwards to Snow flats road.

Very nice leisurely drive with some very nice views. There was some vehicle and bicycle traffic on the trail, but the road is wide enough for safe passing.
