Visitors come to this canyon in the Nevada desert to view its Indian petroglyphs, some of the first known to man. Truly an amazing site, many of the etchings go 40 to 50 feet below the sand level and are hundreds of years old. A few of the more common ones have been translated but the rest remain a mystery.

This was a great place to visit. If was easy to find and he views are breath taking. I thought it would be a tough hike with the younger children but the trails were easy to navigate.

Grapevine Canyon was easy to find off of the highway. There was parking spaces with a sign marking the entrance to the trail that leads you to a dried creek bed. You walk a short ways and you enter a canyon and see petroglyphs on the rocks on either side of you. Very cool. It's an easy hike and not... More

This is only about 20 minutes away from Laughlin, Nevada; you need a vehicle to get there, unless you like long treks. It was mid March, and the desert is drab. Here is a well posted location with parking and restrooms. Only a 10 minute hike to the beautiful, green spring-fed canyon. There is various plant life that thrives in... More

Don't miss this! Very easy hike! Beautiful scenery!! Our 11 year old son was being a slacker at first. As soon as he heard the word "hike" he started complaining. When I was ready to turn back...he asked if we could keep going! We all loved it!

A nice place not too hard to get too and only a small hike or a bigger one if you desire. A little warm in the summer so go early if going in the spring or summer.

We ventured out looking for this canyon a week ago but our maps app could not get us to the right location. After talking to a number of people we were able to get to the right place. Heading to Laughlin get off on Christmas tree pass & then follow on the dirt path to the canyon area. Good parking... More

What a wonderful excursion for the day. It is a dirt Road off of the main highway but it's flat and can be traveled with a small car. Very easy walk to the petroglyphs, which are right in front of you. No heavy climbing unless you have the urge to. You can walk down from the parking area to the... More

This is one of the few places left to go for free. It is a very short drive outside Laughlin, easy to get to. It is so peaceful there. Kids would also love it. Wear good walking shoes. The petroglyphs are easily visible from the trail, but you can also do some climbing. I was glad I brought my camera... More
