You have to search a little to see these ruins, but the views surrounding this area are amazing. This is one of my favorite canyons, and these views are some of the reasons why.

At maybe a mile and a half drive, this overlook is the longest distance off the road of all the south rim overlooks. The road is paved, there is plenty of parking, and the view is incredible. If you are not mobile, though, you should...More

It is impossible to get too much of Canyon de Chelly. In Northeast Arizona on Navajo land it is truly a miraculous pale of nature.

Viewed from an easily accessible overlook, this is a magnificent geological view. You can hike through the canyon with a guide, but you can only really get the scale from the top of the canyon.

The ruin can be a bit hard to see from the overlook, but the viewpoint is still gorgeous. We loved the 2 days we spent at Canyon de Chelly and still would like to return for another visit.

This viewpoint has a wonderful view of the canyon. The ruins can only be seen through a telescope or your binoculars, but the overall view is the star at this stop.

This is a beautiful ruin which includes an amazing view of the canyon floor. There is a little farm nearby and we could see the newly plowed field ready for planting. I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 due to the fact that...More

It's hard to give an archaeolocial site in Canyon de Chelly an average rating, only giving it because there are better sites if you are short on time. If you visit, go before shadows are cast on the site. It can be hard to see.

This is another great overlook about midway along the south rim drive of the Canyon. There are stunning views of the rocks and of the fertile green floor of the valley

View of Sliding Rock Ruin offers not only a view of the canyon but also one of the better vantage points to photograph the canyon. One of the many spectacular viewpoints on the South Rim.
