Imagine combining the beauty and scenery of the Grand Canyon with the rich human history of ancient Egypt and you’ll come close to picturing what Canyon de Chelly has to offer.

Hiking Trails in Canyon de Chelly

The White House Trail to the white house ruins is one of the few trails in Canyon de Chelly that is open for hiking without a Navajo guide. The hike begins at the White House Overlook trailhead and hikers descend from the overlook down the ruins in 1 mile (2+ miles roundtrip). The ruins are of a complex dwelling believed to have been built around the year 1070. It once had nearly 60 rooms and was home to over 50 people. Some of the ruins have been destroyed by weather and natural forces, but excavations have revealed many artifacts and burial sites.

Because most hiking trails in Canyon de Chelly require a guide, many of the best hiking trails are little known. There are opportunities for ranger-led hikes in Canyon de Chelly as well and these can give you access to other areas. Although many visitors to the canyon enjoy the scenic views of imposing Spider Rock from the canyon’s rim, there are many that miss out on opportunities to hike on the canyon floor or hike up side canyons like Canyon del Muerto. Plan your visit carefully and with the help of a ranger or local guide, and you’ll see a lot more.
