Overview

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.

There are so many wonderful sights to see driving this canyon. Bring your lunch and plenty of water because there are more easy off road trips to take on this drive.

The Canyon is a little off the beaten path down a gravel road. It is a nice break from the hustle and bustle of casino row. The walk is enjoyable listening to the birds and reaching the hieroglyphics Indians have etched in the stone many...More

Based on other reviews we checked this out on our last trip. There is a short hike to numerous petroglyphs. There are many to see, looks like some are probably graffiti. There is not a marked trail and the wash area was a smoother walk...More

Drove to Grapevine Canyon with my wife down a dirt road. We continued through Christmas Tree Pass to return to art. 95. Wonderful trip and the views are fantastic. Would recommend anyone in the area to do it.

Located on Christmas Tree Pass, this is a great activity that is free. The walk to the rocks with the Petroglyphs is along dirt and loose rocks. Sensible footwear is a must. This is not a place for flip flops.

This short hike is a gem. Lovely desert and rock formations, with petroglyphs you can see either in front of you or by looking up a bit. There are signs asking you to protect them, but there is some evidence of vandalism.

Finally decided to do this hike since it's too hot in summer. Easy dirt road to trailhead. Hike to petroglyphs is flat. Hike continues into canyon, but gets more difficult with boulder hopping. Great scenery. Excellent petroglyphs.

It would take about an hour to view the rock art. Obviously you can spend as much time as you would like walking through the Canyon. If you would like, Christmas Tree Pass is about 13 miles long. This road is not paved... More

You can drive on a dirt road to the parking area. Then you do have to walk approx. 1/4 of am mile. its worth the walk!
