Chinle to Shiprock + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
After riding along the North rim of the Canyon De Chilly head to Tsaile on Indian RT 64. Turn North on Indian Rte 12 through Lukachutcha. After turning right onto Indian Rte 13 it's up and over the mountains on some nice twisty 2 lane paved road to Shiprock.
In Chinle there are plenty of eateries and fuel stations so fill up before stopping at the Park Information Center. This trip goes along the North rim of the Canyon De Chilly ... not as grand as the Grand Canyon, but beautiful in their own right! The landscape changes several times going up through and over a Buffalo Pass and ends in a desert environment with limited amenities along the way.
A lot of 2 lane with limited shoulder and NO guardrails. Much of the route is relatively straight but there are curves mixed in all along the way.
Fuel up in Chinle before departing.
