Although most of the park is in Arizona, the area code is Utah. The park is 24 miles north of Kayenta near the state line. You make a right just after the Welcome to Utah sign (coming from the south). There's a bunch of stands here where the Navajo sell their crafts. A four mile paved road leads to the Visitor Center and campground. There is an incredible view from here. From the visitor center, a rough unpaved road covers 17 miles of stunning valley views. You can drive it in your own vehicle (ordinary cars can just get by) or you can take a tour.

Go there by car, or you can do it the Forrest Gump way; just start running!!
There is only one main road, US 163, which links Kayenta, AZ with US 181 in Utah. The stretch approaching the AZ/UT border from the north is the most famous image of the valley, and possibly of the whole Southwest - a long straight empty road leads across flat desert towards the 1,000 foot high stark red cliffs on the horizon, curving away just in front. The highway cuts through the mesas at Monument Pass, near which several dirt tracks leave both east and west and criss-cross the red sandy landscape, offering a more close up appreciation of the rock formations.

Monument valley can be reached from two directions - north and south. There is no public service in what is navajo tribal land, for visitors anyway.
