Valley of the Gods is an open valley that is maintained by the Bureau of Land Management. There is a 17 mile dirt road that is nothing more than a plowed dirt path that is passable by family car only in dry weather. There are few areas where the road goes down and crosses a dry river bed. If flooding occurs, those area can be impassible as the entrance signs warn. The road is smooth and there are a lot of pull-off points, but I would recommend a Jeep or high-clearance vehicle if you can rent one.
You’ll need to pack a cooler or backpacks with food and drinks. There are no facilities. Nothing is marked and there are no official trails. This area is a very good place for photography since there is nothing to block your view from the scenery that will surround you.
