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.

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.

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.
