We will have a 6 hour hike which can be geared toward your activity level. We typically hike from Tunnel trail to White house Trail. We will see Lupita’s ancestral lands, Junction Ruins, First Ruins, White House Ruins and many other wonders along the way – rock art, hogans, often sheep and sometimes horses (please check out our gallery and Facebook for pictures and visitor stories).

As we walk the gentle canyon trails, we'll hear stories that are told at certain seasons of the year in the Navajo Culture.The rock walls of the canyon rise 1000 feet in some places. 


Many opportunities for thrilling, panoramic photographs abound on the canyon rim or deep within its walls. Don’t forget your camera!!!!

Sack lunches can be ordered at Thunderbird cafeteria or you can purchase food and snacks at the local store. If you have special dietary needs please make sure you bring what you need for the day. We will have various beverages, soft drinks and bottled water available on our tour. Campers must supply their own food. We can talk to you about what might work best in the canyon.
