If you're driving the other way they are a little bit harder to spot, they are right after a curve and cannot be seen before the curve. The pull in is on the same side of the road as the feet so a left if coming from the Tuba City direction.

Can't miss these as you're traveling in either direction along Highway 160. There's not a whole lot more here than a cool photo op, but if you're feeling like stretching your legs a bit you can pull over to the side of the road and walk around the base of the structures. Depending on the time of the year there are also usually a couple of pop up stands set up selling handmade Navajo jewelry.

Literally right next to the road (Route 160) on the north side of the pavement. The indicator is in about the right spot on the drive (about halfway between Tuba City and Kayenta). Can't miss them, especially if you are driving from Kayenta to Tuba City.

Cool place, a pull out off the highway. Good place to stop, stretch legs, and MAN they do look like elephant's feet! Pretty neat. I stayed for about 5 mins.

Right next to the road. No other towers around so you can't miss them. Just rolled our windows down and took a pick:)
