Mexican Hat

The Mexican Hat (in Spanish: sombrero Mexicano) is a small community that can be found along the San Juan River in south-central San Juan County, in Utah, USA. It's just off of Highway 163, 5 miles south of the intersection with Utah Highway SR-261. It's adjacent to the northern border of the Navajo Nation and Monument Valley. There are only 88 inhabitants in the town. The name "Mexican Hat" comes from an interesting rock formation that's shaped like a hat. It's 18.3 meters wide and 3.7 meters thick, and at a height of 1,340 meters. It is located northwest of the town on the way to Monument Valley.

Mexican Hat Rock

This rock is takes the name of the closest village to it and the best option is to stay in this area. It's a curious rock formation shaped like a hat, 18 m wide and 3.7 m wide. It is located northwest of the village on the way to Goosenecks Park. It has 2 routes for climbing, but most tourists just drive the way we travelled - around the rock.
