If These Walls Could Talk... They would tell you that for nearly 5,000 years, people have lived in these canyons - longer than anyone has lived uninterrupted anywhere on the Colorado Plateau. Their homes and images tell us their stories. Today, Navajo families make their homes, raise livestock, and farm the lands in the canyon. The National Park Service and Navajo Nation are actively working together to manage park resources.

amazing! great hike with amazing views of the canyon and the dwellings at the end.

Mostly driving. Hike to the White House is about 3 miles. A must do when in area.

Great trail! Drops over 600 feet to the valley floor. Beautiful valley but in a very remote location. Take the jeep tour to Spider Rock if your in the area.

Descente dans le Canyon de Chelly très agréable. On se demande bien par où le chemin passe dans la falaise, mais en fait il y a un petit tunnel qui permet de déboucher dans un éboulis. Chemin très bien tracé et très praticable.
La vue sur la falaise avec les ruines est époustouflante.

Cool trail down to White House ruins. Keep toddlers close. Some steep drops and no rails.

The drive along the rim here is something to see. Each viewpoint gets higher and higher off the canyon floor. I went as far as Spider Rock overlook. Pretty close to 1000' sheer drops from that spot. No guardrails at all when I was there years ago. Need to be careful, especially if you have kids in tow. Definitely worth going to see though.

Nice hike down to the ruins. Beautiful views of the red rocks and cliffs along the way. If you're from a region that's at sea level (like me), the ascent might be challenging on a hot day (think I had a touch of altitude sickness with exertion) but I recovered quickly and well. Would definitely recommend as it is cool to get up to the actual ruins. Bring lots of water! You're exposed most of the time but there are quite a few shady areas for rest.

accomplished this trail on Sunday and very much enjoyed it. although it's rated easy, it's 1.5 mile back up! all incline! I'm not in shape, but I would do this walk again in a heartbeat

Canyon de Chelly had some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. We didn't have time to hike (plus you need an escort) so we ended up driving to all the points on the South Rim. It is best to drive the South Rim in the afternoon and the North Rim in the morning because of the sun. Beautiful area!!

beautiful and easy! the only trail that opens to public in the NM but def worth it. nice red rock canyon, some of the part looks like the WAVE formation, and high giant canyon wall at the end. A lot of birds!

Very easy trail with a rewarding view! We were there during fresh snow so it's very quiet and beautiful

one of the most beautiful hikes ever

This trail is more for the tourist/novice hiker. However, it is a very nice trail. Well maintained. Going down is the easy part. Good workout going back up.

Took my 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter here and did this hike. Very Cool area you feel as if you went back in time 1000 years and you just have so many questions.

I didn't mind this hike, My wife on the other hand would not rate it very high, I would put this on the "hard" end of easy, especially if you do it in some heat, coming up can be rough in the heat, very little shade if any. Definitely enjoyable going down, once in the canyon, it's ok. My wife did not like the Indian sellers you have to walk by to see the ruins, or the fact you are kept a pretty good distance away from them, with an ugly steel fence between you & the ruins (not great for pictures). It is the only way to see the canyon without hiring a guide, so from that perspective, to me it's kinda a must do unless you happy taking pictures from the overlooks looking down

I grew up near the Canyon and it brings back memories of my childhood. Its a beautiful place to hike and I recommend doing it before sunset because the colors of the Arizona sky and the walls of canyon are amazing!
