Valley of the Gods

A breathtaking location, the Valley of the Gods is filled with stone pinnacles and jutting buttes that dot the mostly flat valley floor. A scenic 17-mile gravel and dirt road loops through the area and, while there are no designated campgrounds, camping is allowed, as is backcountry hiking. The area is north of the town of Mexican Hat, which has some lodging and food options as well as a gas station, but there are no services or facilities in the Valley of the Gods itself.

More Recommendations

Moki Dugway

We opted to take the more scenic but precarious route from Bluff to Green river via the windy Moki Dugway in the Valley of the Gods. Not recommended for drivers who fear heights.
