Petrified Forest National Park presents a surreal landscape of large deposits of petrified wood.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Long Logs Loop and Meteor City Trading Post. Escape the urban bustle at Devil's Playground and Painted Desert. Go for a jaunt from Petrified Forest National Park to Ganado to see Hubbell Trading Post about 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: trek along Blue Mesa, take a peaceful walk through Rainbow Forest, look for all kinds of wild species at Giant Logs, and don't miss a visit to Painted Desert Inn.

For more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Petrified Forest National Park trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 71°F in May, and nighttime lows around 34°F. You'll set off for home on the 31st (Fri).
