This attraction is called Sliding House, not Sliding Rock. Sliding House Overlook is a viewpoint on paved South Rim Drive (Rt. 7) in Canyon de Chelly National Monument, about 10 miles east of the visitor center (free admission). The distant ruin that is visible across the canyon floor from here is one of the less impressive ones, but the canyon... More

YOU HAVE TO DRIVE AND CHECK ALL OF THE AREAS SO YOU GET TO APPRECIATE THE PANORAMA!! KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU ARE INA NA INDIAN RESERVATION, and the rules are to respect the people and their land. you will get to see roads and houses at the bottom, they belong to the Native Americans

This rock looks completely different when we passed it on the canyon floor. You must do both the floor and the rim drive for some amazing views!

View it during the South rim drive and during your floor canyon tour. I can't say enough about how brilliant these people were to build where they did and how long these homes were occupied. Don't forget those binoculars.

Multiple canyon features visible from here, couldn't really find the ruin, but the rock formations, view of the canyon bottom and split were terrific. Met some really nice people there, too!

Another of the nice South Rim overlooks that provide excellent shots of the canyon area and the cliff ruins.

You will enjoy the views of these ruins more if you have a pair of binoculars and a good camera. These ruins provide a great introduction to cliff dwelling and how much it must have cost the occupants to reside here.
