We went out a gorgeous canyon drive to get to this place. It had a sweet building with hundreds of post it notes all over the walls. But, the trail was ridiculous. It was almost straight up and down with rocks and boulders. I never...More

What a great stop. Thanks to the family that has made this accessible to the public. This place is just a few miles outside of Vernal and is pretty easy to find. The hike up to the images is pretty short, but it is really...More

The petroglyphs are amazing and varied. It's a short hike to see the sites and are better accessed with hiking boots. Tennis shoes will suffice but boots would be better.

We visited the ranch on a Thursday morning around 10am and another family was just finishing their hike, leaving us to enjoy the petroglyphs by ourselves. We spent about an hour on the trail. It was cool and quiet. The hike was moderately strenuous, going...More

McKonkie Ranch is the perfect place to view lots of Indian artwork in one place. This is our second trip out as we wanted to show it off.

Fremont era pictographs and petroglyphs are located on PRIVATE property. Luckily, the owners are nice enough to allow the public to hike and view them. PLEASE do follow their requests to stay on the trail, pay the honor system entrance fee and make sure gates...More

Very impressive petroglyphs. If you have time for only one trail, I would recommend the 3 Kings Trail. I think the Main Trail is longer and probably has more images but the ones on 3 Kings are more impressive. Sturdy footwear and hiking poles were...More

Located just outside town by a few miles. Watch for the make shift sign. They ask for a donation but not required. It's on an honor system. The wall panels are amazing. Well worth going for a few hours.

I suppose you could. I saw no signs saying you couldn't. The path to climb is narrow, but no problem for a dog.
