We took a morning tour of the canyon, which was four hours. We stopped at several locations that had petroglyphs and ancient houses and grainies. A life-ling resident, our guide was fantastic because he was able to share his knowledge of the area.

One of the most amazing sights i have ever seen in my life, prepare to have your breath taken away when you visit. Hopefully you can make time for the trail down to the white house ruins.

Canyon de Chelly is fantastic. The White House was terrific and it was amazing how you could only see it at certain times. Spider rock was fun too. It is magnificent to see Native American sites like this. Definitely come here.

The rim roads are very driveable. You have to have a guide to tour the canyon floor. The only public access to the canyon is the White House Trail

As for the roads, we have had no trouble getting into Chinle, or out. That being said, the roads and trails INSIDE the Canyon are very rough, not improved, BUT you cannot go in there on your own, you MUST have a Navajo... More
