The Locals Know… Tips From the People Who Live Here!

One of the best ways for visitors to see what San Juan County has to offer is to ask the people who live here!  I went out and asked a few local residents what they would recommend for visitors to see or do during their visit. Here are a few of their answers…


‘Dead Horse Point State Park and Hovenweep National Monument’

-Dorothy, Community Ambassador at the Southeast Utah Welcome Center in Monticello, UT


‘Edge of the Cedars State Park’

-Cynthia, Manager of the National 9 Navajo Trail in Monticello, UT


‘Shay Canyon Petroglyphs & Dinosaur Tracks’

-Jim, Owner of Abajo Trading Post in Monticello, UT


‘Lake Powell, Butler Wash, Natural Bridges National Monument, Elephant Hill (4-WD Road in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park), Monument Valley, & Newspaper Rock’

-Melissa & Natalie, San Juan County employees


‘Take the Hart’s Draw Road to Newspaper Rock, then do the Chesler Park hike in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park’

-Jared, Owner of Inn at the Canyons in Monticello, UT
