We were told about this out of the way hidden treasure and had to go and see for ourselves. It is located by getting off Route 40 onto Route Az 87 and traveling past Homolovi State Park and continuing on this road for about 15-16 miles. You turn on to Painted Desert Drive, which is a road in pretty rough shape. This park has been deserted by the County and there are no facilities. It is an empty and desolate place and we were the only people there. A bit spooky. But, there are spectacular views of the colorful, banded hillsides, which look like a combination of artist palate and Zabriski Point in Death Valley. You can hike down into the valley, but I would not, as you are warned that it is treacherous and it sure looks it. It certainly is a hidden gem.
