Canyon de Chelly National Monument Information
Canyon de Chelly National Monument was created in coordinated efforts with the Navajo Tribe. It’s located in the northeastern corner of Arizona and Navajo Nation. The protected area surrounds a deep and majestic canyon and is packed with ruins and petroglyphs. The area also offers a rich history of the native people set against breathtaking beauty as unique as the Colorado Plateau itself. A guided tour is needed to access most of the canyon, but the White House Ruins Trail is accessible to anyone, bringing visitors on a scenic hike from the canyon rim down to amazing ancient ruins. It’s remote location and off-the-beaten trail access ensure that you can also get away from large crowds as well and enjoy the nature for what it is.
