Good to see the history of the area and the indigenous people highlighted. This is a very good spot to view the petroglyphs relatively up close. There is a footbridge that allows you to walk to areas where the sights are better so make sure...More

We have passed by this panel of petroglyphs many times and have had trouble getting good photos because of the angle of the sun's light. If at first, you don't succeed, keep trying like we did and eventually you will like what you get.

Very easy and shady walk to see them. Couple different places and a nice, new walkway. Great educational information provided. Please DO NOT vandalize them, it is a very steep fine!

We enjoyed the talk by the park ranger, discussing the Fremonts who lived and farmed in the area between 300 and 1300 AD until a long drought.

There are about 4 or 5 drawings on the lower part of the cliff that you have to view from about 50 yards. They are very hard to make out, but, it is an easy park the car and short walk to a viewing area....More

Very well remained images of prehistory, really we don't know who were those people, and even don't know exactly when they remain messages for us. Only possible to look on Petroglyphs and imagine what they wanted to say.
