Valley of the Gods is a scenic backcountry area near Mexican Hat. It is a hidden gem with scenery similar to that of nearby Monument Valley. Valley of the Gods offers isolated buttes, towering pinnacles and wide open spaces that seem to go on forever.
There are no designated trails or campgrounds. Bikers like to ride the road through the valley. The valley is isolated and you may not run into other people, with no facilities, stores or gas stations. It is advised you bring emergency kit and enough supplies.
A high clearance vehicle may be needed. Most cars can make it during dry conditions. If there is wet weather a 4X4 is recommended.
The Valley of the Gods road connects with Hwy 261 on the west side. Clost to Moki Dugway. (The Moki Dugway is a set tight switchbacks that allow Hwy 261 to climb the cliff face to Cedar Mesa top)
While visiting Valley of the Gods, be sure to stop at Goosenecks State Park. It is also an easy ride to the Moki Dugway.
Dinner at the many fine restaurants in Bluff can complete your day trip.
