We took this trip not really expecting much. We were so wrong. This place is pretty neat. You do have to actually hike/climb to see the Petroglyphs but the trails are short and worth it. One suggestion do not trust MapQuest for directions. We went on a wild goose chase with our phones and MapQuest directions.

Loved this hike!!! My kids 19 & 12 yrs old loved trying to find the petroglyphs. We could not believe how many were right there in front of you

Great hike! We decided to run it and found it to be a great workout. We also included the 3 Kings trail and together it was over 5 miles. Great views! We plan on going again.

So glad the property owner preserved it! Awesome! Worth the trip. Be ready to climb a little. The owner is very nice and gave us a tour.

Awesome petroglyphs! Ranch is actually a few yards further then the map says.. But it gets you in the general direction. Was easy with little kids and dog, great hike!

Some of the best petroglyph viewing in the entire west! Panel, after panel, after marvelous panel are easily accessible. From the parking lot, the best glyphs are to the South.
