U.S. Hwy 163
Monument Valley Tribal Park has been closed down for quite some time. They are anticipating opening the park up at the beginning of July.
One of the only ways to visit Monument Valley is along the highway and local dirt roads. Here is our list of best routes to explore while visiting and the park isn’t open. Hiking and exploring by foot isn’t recommended as some locals will be protective of the area and ask you to leave. Stay on trails and close to the road ways.
