  • Great interpretationn area but unfortunately we couldn't see the actual stones/drawings due to moss and pine needles that were covering them.  more »
  • Very cool. Unfortunately visitors can't help but to deface some of the glyphs.... dont be those people.
  • A small park with mostly hard to see petroglyphs. We did find a geocash nearby though.
  • I don't understand. GOOGLE just brought me to a retirement complex. Where am I?
  • Quite an uphill climb and someone just had to spray paint on some of the rocks but pretty cool none the less
  • Really letting this park go... But it is neat to see the remaining Petroglyphs.
