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.

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.

One of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. Loved the whole experience.

Nice historical and geological wonder

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!
