Why go there?

Tsegi Canyon is a place like no other. For nearly 5,000 years, people have lived in these canyons - longer than anyone has lived uninterrupted anywhere on the Colorado Plateau. In the place called Tsegi, their homes and images tell us their stories. Today, Navajo families make their homes, raise livestock and farm the lands in the canyons. The park and Navajo Nation work together to manage the land's resources. The result is a place where visitors can explore the history and culture of the Navajo people while enjoying the beauty of the canyon landscape. Whether you are hiking through the redrock cliffs or spending a night under the stars, Tsegi Canyon is an unforgettable destination.
