If you are in the Valley of the Gods area in Utah this is one trail that you should not miss. The valley springs up out of nowhere with a sight to see at every turn. It almost feels like a national park but it hasn't gotten to that step yet. There are pull outs to stop and admire the scenery, but there are no signs to point out the names of the features.
There are no tour busses or tourist traps in the area, no gas stations, gift shops, coffee shops, washrooms, and rarely any other tourists. Most are hesitant to bring their vehicles on the trail because it can be very rough and bumpy and subject to washouts. Some areas have rocks exposed from the shifting sands and scraping bottom is a strong possibility. However, the solitude and serenity of the area is well worth the extra hour it takes one to get through it.
Valley of the Gods is an eerie, desolate, magnificent landscape. If you want to escape from civilization, look no further.
