Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We left just before sunset. The monuments emerged against the backdrop of the wide open space. It was beyond peaceful. The sun created beautiful colors as the rays bounced off the rock. One of my most memorable times of our 10 day Northern Arizona trip!’

Wildcat trail is a beautiful way to experience this stunning landscape.
Take the time to walk this trail, you won’t be sorry.
Start by signing in at the office downstairs in The View Hotel.
The trailhead is at the end of the parking lot towards the camping area.
This trail offers breathtaking views of this magical landscape, take your time and enjoy it.

make new, or a road. Thank God we had a Jeep rental. Compared to a national park like Yellowstone, it is a shame such a short trail, image of the Navajo People in the reservation is in such a deplorable condition and presentation.

The 3.8-mile Wildcat Trail starts near the driver's entrance of the 17-mile loop of the park. The tribe asks that you sign in and out at the trailhead. As I recall, the hike took my family 2-3 hours. The hike is easy/moderate until the last maybe 0.5 mile where you climb back out of the valley through soft sand. It takes you around the West Mitten Butte with great views of multiple monuments. Great hike!

This is one of the only trails open available for the public to hike. After we did the morning backcountry tour, we went back in the afternoon and did this 4- mile hike. It was an easy hike, pretty flat, and took us through some incredibly beautiful scenery.

Was here in late September this year. We arrived around 5PM so the car tour was out of the equation, and we decided to take the Wildcat Trail.
It was magnicifent, trail leads between 3 main buttes and you can see them in close - breathtaking.
It takes around 2 hours. It's rather easy and can be completed by everyone.

Amazing place to visit. Highly recommend doing the Wildcat trail hike. It is easy and how many folks hike in Monument Valley? Great hike. Then do the 17 mile drive through the valley which is amazing. Lots of photo op places to stop. We stayed in Mexican Hat which was great! Other places to see - Goosenecks State Park, Mexican Hat Rock, Mesa Verde National Park. Great trip!

We went later in the day when not as hotandlighting was beautiful. Easy flat trail with great vistas. Can go at whatever pace you with Road areas are dusty and some drivers are a little erratic so use caution

As if mid July 2021, the Wildcat
Trail is still closed. This is a bummer, since we were looking forward to doing it in the morning. Not sure why the park is open, and the trail closed, but that is that. Would take you by one of the Mittens.

You really can't get the scale and variety of this place without a least walking part of this trail. To walk all the way around the Mitten is amazing. It's not a hard hike (although challenging in high winds), and well worth it. Get some exercise!
