Driving the loop in Monument Valley

by JanetLC Online Now Mar 15, 2009 at 1:22 PM

How long does is take to drive the 17 mile loop in Monument Valley? Does anyone know the cost of the Jeep tours and how long they take? If a person has two hours to spend there, would they be able to see much?

    I imagine these tours would be typical for time and cost:

    www.monumentvalley.com/Pages/english_homepage.html

    If you do an internet search for the term

    "monument valley" tours

    you'll find several other choices. One of them is bound to meet your needs.

    If you drive your own car on the gravel / dirt road open to anyone paying the entrance fee, plan on spending two to three hours. You won't get as much as you would in a guided tour, but you'll pay less.

    Note also that hiking in Monument Valley is ABSOLUTELY forbidden.

    How long it takes to drive the loop totally depends on you - how long you stop at all the suggested buttes and mesas. As you are not allowed to hike you will not spend a lot of time at each stop, so you can easily do it in two hours, especially if you are in a little hurry.

    The jeep tour we did was a half day tour, so about 4 hours. It did not only lead to remote areas of MV you are not to go on your own but also included a visit to native Americans and their homes.

    I was just looking at the View hotel website - they said there's a hiking trail that leaves from the hotel.

    Interesting information!

    But obviously this trail is 4 miles long, whereas the loop drive is 20 miles, so this is not identical.
