Parowan gap is emerging as one of the most important ancient sites in the USA. Thousands of years of native Americans passed through this gap, leaving thousands of unique petroglyphs and art. Much work has gone into understanding these drawings and a cave has been...More

It's out in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful drive. Not much to do though. The petroglyphs are awesome but there is nothing else there.

We love seeing petroglyphs anywhere we go in the west. These were worth the trip. We had the place to ourselves and took the time to check out both sides of the road. A little bit of a steep hike

So easy to see off the road with no hiking! Definitely worth a detour off the freeway to check it out if you enjoy petroglyphs.

REAL close. It’s fenced off. Some glyphs go way up the rocks. Walk all around. You’ll find info boards. FYI, stop to see the dinosaur fossil tracks. It’s in the same area-it’ll be the first stop on the right coming... More
