Written Directions

Take US Highway 163 .. Monument Pass Between Mexican Hat, UT and the Arizona border

Scenery

This is some of the most beautiful biking. Every trip I take to the Southwest, I try to route through here. In the Navajo Indian Reservation, this is where John Wayne filmed some movies. Large columns of rock rise from the desert floor and set the perfect backdrop for a great day of riding! There is nothing out there so come prepared with water and plenty of gas.

Drive Enjoyment

Mainly straight with some curves and canyons, watch for falling rocks in some areas.

Tourism Opportunities

Basically it is the scenery and would ride a couple hundred miles out of my way to see it!

I can't believe I've never taken a single photo along this route. I take it twice each year and love the views. The distant monumental rock formations are what give the area its name. The rock coloring goes from white to brown to red. The road can be rough at times, but mostly it's the traffic which is pretty steady that is the bother.
