  • If you take the direction of Second Mesa from Tuba City HW 264 You can turn left just after milepost 337 on a dirtroad. (Note the exit for milepost 337 is private and leads to a house). There is nothing further signposted and you basically drive over private terrain along the cows. You have to drive towards the windmill that you see in the distance. A bit after this windmill you see a kind of parking space with a fence. Behind this fence are concrete picnic benches. When you walk to the edge the extraordinary landscape unfolds the whimsical shapes and colors are beautiful to see. Definitely worth the drive.

  • This amazing canyon seemed to have escaped my canyon tours. While I have been to this area before I had no idea of how big and beautiful this place really is. The trails are easy and it is not crowded...  more »
  • Love this place!! I hope that it stays a local secret. If you plan to go you MUST get a permit from the reservation. The canyon is on private property. I photographed an adventure anniversary session here in the summer!! Love this spot for an Arizona Elopement.
  • Beautiful pair of canyons in the middle of nowhere. Plug "Coal Mine Canyon" into your gps and you'll be taken to the entrance off of 264. You don't need a 4 wheel drive vehicle as it has been suggested, my Nissan Sentra was able to handle the drive perfectly.
