Canyon De Chelly National Monument Climate

It is important to realize that unpredictable weather may adversely affect your visit to Canyon De Chelly National Monument. High winds, rain, and other extreme conditions are frequent in the area during spring and late summer months, while snow and ice make travel hazardous in the winter. In the spring and late summer, flash flood conditions may exist, and will close the canyon floor to some or all motorized guiding services. Hiking and horseback tours may still be available during these closures.

Weather conditions are monitored on a daily basis, and inquiries to canyon closures may be directed to the Visitor Center at (928)674-5500 ext. 222.
