A miniature Monument Valley! A good graded gravel road. Suitable for passenger cars.

My first time. Awesome trail, breathe taking views and easy ride. No 4wd needed. A few camp sites along the trail, perfect for a quick overnighter. Already planning to go back soon.

You don’t need 4 wheel drive for this one. Lots of people doing the drive in rental cars. Very scenic throughout. Great campsites along the way. Remote.

Spent Thanksgiving night camping under the stars. Stunning! Easy drive when dry although there are a few sections of bad washboarding (the road gets a lot of use). The better camping spots are along the eastern half of the road.

We did this trail late in the evening, starting off US163- Mexican Hat-Bluff; and came out on SH261 just south of the Moki Dugway. Very Scenic!

A minature monument valley! Good graveled roads, and a pleasure to drive.

This was a fun drive and if the road is dry you can drive a rental no problem. The road is dirt and red gravel, bumpy and washboard in spots, but you are in the middle of the desert and can see some pretty nice rock formations. Not as spectacular as Monument Valley, and expect to wash your vehicle after driving it.

We were staying in Mexican Hat, UT. Along with my sons Ron and Bob, we Jeeped the 18 mile dirt road. The area looks like a miniture Monument Valley, very scenic. And was it hot!
