    This trail kicked my butt for sure, but it was worth it!

    Some recommendations: bring more water than you think you'll need, especially if you're hiking during midday, bring a hiking stick or poles (these will be so helpful near the especially steep portions, plus get those arms a workout!), and definitely have a hat and warm jacket since the top of Elden is tremendously windy and chilly.

    Take your time, stop to enjoy the view once in awhile, and you won't have too much trouble with this trail.

    The Wildcat Trail is a loop which goes around the West Mitten Butte in Monument Valley. The trail is wonderfully maintained and very clearly marked all along its path. The views along the hike are all excessively gorgeous and it's impossible to miss these beautiful rock formations.

    Going downhill in the soft sand at the beginning of the trail is easy-going, and the rest of the trail follows this initial trend by being very level and flat. Yet, when returning from the loop, going uphill in the soft sand can get pretty strenuous. Be prepared for that uphill battle and you'll be golden!

    Overall, this hike is an absolutely amazing part of Monument Valley and should not be missed!

    Not a very long walk at all, there's a gazebo at the crest of the hill before the descent.

    The views are gorgeous but the morning lighting is not ideal for photos, definitely recommend afternoon lighting for any other photographers out there!

    Very crowded, have to hike a bit to find an isolated spot that may not have an ideal view, or be willing to climb a bit.

    Overall, the views trumped the crowds and it was a beautiful morning stop!
