  • Cliff dwelling close to the canyon floor. Believe it was in the latest Lone Ranger movie. We visited via a jeep tour, although fenced off you can get an up close view.  more »
  • We went to the overlook for White House Ruin and purchased paintings from Ramone Yazzie-an incredible artist! Then we descended on the trail down into Canyon De Chelly to White House Ruins. The ruins....  more »
  • Even viewing from the rim it is an awesome site. The park is not busy in the summer, but very hot. Take water.  more »

  • Did this trail almost 10 years ago. Very warm & dry. Hill all the way back up. But amazing views at bottom. Saw Navajo Hogan house/farm and a wild horse family. --- The day before I car-camped to splurge savings on horse guided tour. Was amazing seeing different ruins and nature. Girl outfit did tour $45 back then w/ free breakfast. 2-3hrs = sore bum! But SO WORTH IT!
  • Great views from the overlook. There's clearly marked trail here to get down to the ruins. I believe this is the only trail you can take on your own, without a guide, you're on Navajo land here. Always take plenty of water with you.
  • Good place to stop and get some great views of the Canyon and the house. My visit to the Canyon de Chelly was one of the highlights if my Arizona trip. The views of the canyon are breathtaking. Every overlook gives you a different feel of the canyon. Maybe some day I will go back and tour the bottom of the canyon and look up these beautiful walls.
  • If possible, do the trail down to the ruins. It is a nice grade and a marvel of small scale human engineering. You pass through two tunnels to descend to the bottom. The valley floor is amazing. The ruins are spectacular up close.
