If you’ve ever wondered how a town got to be named Mexican Hat, you only have to see this rock formation to get your answer.

Mexican Hat Rock can be found just outside of the little town with its namesake and Monument Valley National Park. This anthropomorphic rock formation really looks like a man wearing a large sombrero on his head! The rock measures 60 ft wide by 12 ft high. It’s quite a unique attraction and great photography opportunity. It can be seen just off of highway 163, or you can take a dirt road and hike a little bit to get up close and personal. This is a great little stop to take on your way to Monument Valley or Goosenecks State Park. There are campgrounds or the Mexican Hat Lodge and Hat Rock Inn are available for those who wish to spend the night in the area and the Hat Rock Cafe is open from 7AM to 9PM.
