Easy short hike or just hang at the entrance where there's a monument to the Navajo Codespeakers of WWII. Informative and easy to see why it was considered a spiritual and sacred place by the original inhabitants.

This place is a must see if you are in the area. Besides the fact that it is "the capital" for the indians, it is with stunning nature. There are markets with the silver jewellery the navaho are known for. And other handcrafted items.

There is a parking lot about 100 yards from the rock itself and the zoo nearby too. The park dedicated to the navajo trackers is right below the rock and is very cute. If you want to hike up to the rock you can too, but we... More
