This was hubby's priority. I liked it more than I thought I would. Once you know what to look for, you see more. Again, afternoons are best for photos. Be sure to walk along the boardwalk to see more. Cool!

These Petroglyphs Trails were less impressive than we thought they would be. The most impressive fact about them is their age. From year 500 – 1700 is remarkable. But, the etchings themselves and how hard they are to see at the distance they are make...More

This is a short stop with some slightly close views of petroglyphs on nearby rock walls. Nothing super special here, but very interesting for the history buffs out there. As we arrived, there was a ranger available to answer questions and chat with park guests.

Easy access from the highway, with decent parking for both cars and large motor homes. The boardwalk parallels the cliffs, and remnants of petroglyphs can be seen all along the path. Also the small meadow on the other side of the walkway is full of...More

This doesn't take any time or effort and is a hit with ALL. There is a wooden boardwalk that is short and takes you directly to the Petroglyphs from the parking lot. Check at the Visitor's Center for the schedule because there is an awesome...More

Did not know what to expect, but what the heck only a very short walk right off the highway, why not stop and see it. It took a little while to spot them because they were fairly subtle. When you stop to think how many...More

This was really neat to see! It was hard to find at first, but worth it when you have spotted it! There are telescopes so it makes it easier to see the details!
