Pretty amazing! Looks like another planet. Went on super bowl Sunday and only saw one other couple. It’s pretty easy if you hike often. Well worth the $20 entrance fee.

Great hike. The terrain was very challenging, it’s like hiking on the sand.

Part of this trail was used for the 2017 Monument Valley Marathon 4-Man Relay Race. It's a great course for trail running! the mitten is stunning when you're at the base.

Bucket list check! Unfortunately, we did not finish this one as the kiddo was with us. We are fortunate to have nicked a good portion of it.

Great hike relatively easy but sandy in parts. Way better option than taking the car or a tour. Also drove out to three sisters.

Great trail! Better than taking the drive or a tour. This was a quiet serene walk amongst the buttes. Wildlife, great photo ops and a mustang to boot. The driving tours are a lot like a herd of cattle among dust clouds. This is a must do hike! The end is a bit strenuous but if your in moderate physical shape and hike at all it should be no problem.

This trail started out easy, however the last stretch was a doozy! All uphill, and since we got rained & hailed on between miles 2 and 3, dodging mud streams added to the complexity of the hike. Pack water.

The views are outstanding. Fun terrain to walk through. Every few steps you'll find a new photo opp. The last 30 minutes is a challenge walking uphill through loose sand, so conserve your water! Go early in the morning to avoid the heat and lots of people on the trail. Do not miss this experience.

An amazing hike in one of the most beautiful and unique places on Earth; highly recommended.


Amazing, as good as it gets!

It is about a 4 mile loop around one of the "mittens". It is relatively easy but definitely try to do this hike early morning, as the heat becomes a factor. There is beautiful scenery and not many people on the trail. I saw about 4 other people in the 2 hours I was on it. Most other people tend to pay insane rates for tour companies to drive them around in their 4 wheel drive cars. This is the only hiking trail in Monument Valley and you see majority of what you'd want. After a while though, this hike gets old as you keep seeing the same few 'monuments'. The last half mile or so is very uphill, so be prepared.

Easy trail. Beautiful loop. Go early or late to have the best temps and views.

My wife and I walked this trail at 7 am, one morning in July. We went out early to avoid the heat of the day.
We met about 6 people throughout the walk. The scenery is wonderful and the trail takes the walker around one of the "mittens", seeing it from all sides. Not a difficult walk at all and reasonably well marked. The hardest part is climbing back up to the hotel at the end. Highly recommend it but probably not in the heat of the day in summer.

Nice easy hike. Very fine sand makes it a little challenging on the way out, but overall fairly easy and beautiful.

This was a great trail! Awesome views and very well marked. I went in the morning and had an easy time, but I could see it being hot once the sun gets higher. The trail is mostly flat, only a slight incline towards the end of the trail.

Really enjoyed the walk. Not difficult and the scenery can't be beat.

Incredible views! Pretty easy trail; the return is up a moderately strenuous hill which is by far the most difficult portion of the trail. If you're visiting Monument Valley, this is a "must do" in my opinion.

You shouldn't go to Monument Valley without taking a quick trek down Wildcat Trail! It''s not the most well marked trail in places (especially the start), but it's arguably the best way to escape the crowds on the driving loop and see the rock formations in relative peace.
