Monument Valley, located on the border between Utah and Arizona, is part of the Colorado Plateau. The Valley sits within the Navajo Nation Reservation and it remained a remote location until the 1930’s when the location was featured in multiple western movies.
The main trail is the Tribal Park Loop, a 17-mile scenic drive that passes by the Valley's most popular sites. Other popular trails include the Wildcat Trail, perfect for a moderate-intensity hike, and the Mystery Valley that offers a more cultural experience, allowing visitors to admire petroglyphs and Anasazi sites.
Some of the Valley's top attractions include Mexican Hat, a rock formation named for its Mexican Sombrero-like appearance, the Teardrop Arch, and the famous view of Monument Valley featured in the movie Forrest Gump.
