Canyon de Chelly Arch One

Canyon de Chelly National Monument is unique among National Monuments in that it lies wholly on Navajo Tribal Trust land. The National Park Service works together with the Navajo Nation to manage the Park. The Canyon sustains a community of Navajo people. The Monument was established April 1, 1931. Two major canyons form a "Y" with Monument Canyon. The south branch is Canyon de Chelly while the north branch is Canyon del Muerto. This arch and Arch Two both are found on the trail to White House Ruin. This trail begins on the south branch. In northeast Arizona, take U.S. 191 to Chinle. The Park is just east of town.
