Trail Head icon

Navajo Trail begins at Sunset Point and travels down into the main amphitheater. This is one of the more popular trails and can be combined with the Queens Garden Trail which will create a longer, but more varied, loop.

While hiking, please be mindful at all times of the loose rocks which can roll on the trail beneath your feet, and rocks that may fall from cliffs above you. A major rock slide occurred in 2006, and subsequent rock slides occurred in 2010 and 2011.

Your safety is our main concern and extra caution is advised due to the fact that more rocks fall on this trail than any other trail in the park.
