Monument Valley, a red-sand desert region on the Arizona-Utah border, is known for the towering sandstone buttes of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. The drive was very scenic with a lot to see from the road. We paid our $20 to see the Park but took the Wildcat Trail to see enjoy the view in person. The "Wildcat Trail" is 3.8 miles long, and is a loop which goes around the West Mitten Butte in Monument Valley. The trail is wonderfully maintained and very clearly marked all along its path. The views along the hike are all excessively gorgeous and it's impossible to miss these beautiful rock formations. .The trail is considered "Easy", except for the 1st 1/3 mile going steeply downhill and the final 1/3 mile going steeply uphill. The loose sand contributes to the stress of this portion of the trail. Take your time and most people will be fine. Bring plenty of water and avoid the middle of the day.
