Located about an hour from Monument Valley, Navajo National Monument preserves three of the most intact cliff dwellings of the ancestral puebloan people. There is a Visitor Center, two short self-guided mesa top trails, camping and picnic areas. Kids can participate in their Junior Ranger program and earn a badge (ask at the Visitor Center).
The Sandal Trail is a 1-mile (round trip) hike down to a viewpoint overlooking the Betatakin cliff dwelling. The trail is paved and the viewpoint is fenced. It leads downhill to the viewpoint and is a bit of a climb back uphill, but there are benches along the way to stop and rest. The Aspen Trail is a spur trail that leads off of the Sandal Trail from near the top.
