Economic Information

The most remote community in San Juan County, Navajo Mountain is only thirty-five air miles from Monument Valley, but 110 road miles. There is no access directly connecting Navajo Mountain to any Utah location. Travel to this small Navajo Chapter Headquarters requires driving into Arizona on US 163, continuing southwest on US 160, west on Arizona 98, then north on Indian Hwy 16. Located on the Navajo Reservation at an elevation of 6500 feet, Navajo Mountain is the trail head for the seventeen mile Rainbow Bridge Trail, which descends from Navajo Mountain to Rainbow Bridge at Lake Powell, the largest natural stone formation of its kind in the world.
