Hiking Trails & Natural Parks

Explore the many natural features of Kayenta.  Within our boundaries, designated natural parks are accessible for hiking and exploring.  Pack a picnic and enjoy the great outdoors right in your back yard.

  • Elephant Rock – The unusual sandstone outcropping takes on the persona of a heard of sleeping elephants.  Perfect for easy climbing, lounging, and playful photos.  Accessible from East Evening Star Drive.
  • Rock Park – This is the largest park in the center of Kayenta.  This scenic mix of slick rock, sandstone formations, minimalist desert views, and overall beauty is a perfect place for an easy hike.  Take a picnic and enjoy the views.  Please remember to leave the site as you found it for the enjoyment of everyone.  Please no bikes.   Accessible from West Evening Star Drive.
  • Hell Hole Canyon – This Canyon gets its name from the fiery red sandstone walls that reach a thousand feet into the sky.  As you enter this narrowing canyon it becomes a cool and tranquil sanctuary.  A natural waterfall flows from the cliffs above during times of heavy rain.  A truly amazing hike!  Parking is available at the bottom of the Taviawk 3 Mile Wash on Taviawk Drive.
  • 3 Mile Wash – This hike follows the flow of the water off of the Kayenta Cliffs in Hell Hole Canyon and tributaries.  This wash switchbacks flowing from north to south and spills into the Santa Clara River.  A canopy of Cottonwoods provides shade as this deep wash reveals hundreds of feet of layered sand, rock, sandstone, and clays.  A great hike to observe wildlife, flora and fauna.  Accessible from Hwy 91 or Paiute Drive (dirt road by foot) or Taviawk Drive at the bottom of 3 Mile Wash.
  • Crescent Moon Reservoir – A cooling body of water in the desert.  Enjoy a swim, take a hike to the rock outcropping on the north-east end of the reservoir and lounge like a lizard in the sun or enjoy kayaking, sailing or rowing on the water.  To keep this body of water tranquil and relaxing, motorized watercraft is not permitted. Access from Crescent Moon Trail via West Lake Drive.  Parking near the Crescent Moon Inn (parking is marked).

The paved roads throughout Kayenta provide a favorite ride with a mix of easy to moderate grades.  Both public and private roads are accessible.  Rules of the Road are a must and cyclists who abide by the rules of the road are welcome to enjoy the fresh air.  Don’t forget your coffee stop at Coyote Gulch Art Village.

Mountain Biking

Kayenta Development has created many dirt roads that provide access and firebreaks to our hundreds of acres of wildlife.  These roads are made accessible to anyone interested in exploring the land on foot or by bike.  No motorized vehicles.  Please stay on the dirt roads in order to protect the fragile natural landscape for everyone to enjoy.
