Wolfe Ranch Rock Art, Arches National Park

4.5
#16 of 17 in Things to do in Arches National Park
Images of bighorn sheep chipped into a sandstone boulder at Wolfe Ranch Rock Art provide a look at the lifestyle of native tribes who lived here before the arrival of European settlers. These etched images were made using primitive tools, depicting equestrians, dogs, and a variety of figures engaged in hunting scenes. Accessible by a trail, the panel lies some 183 m (600 ft) from the main Delicate Arch trail and is worth a short detour at the sign.

    My husband walked the trail to see this. I was worn out from the heat. Go early in the day and bring plenty of water if you go in summer.  more »

Where to stay in Arches National Park

Arches National Park provides camping at the Devils Garden Campground, but most visitors opt to stay in the town of Moab south of the park. You'll find every type of accommodation here, including economy motels, small inns with a rustic Southwest vibe, bed and breakfasts, lodges, and campgrounds. Moab's economy largely revolves around park visitors, so you'll find plenty of restaurants, supermarkets, and various services here. A few publicly operated campgrounds line Route 128 on the park's eastern edge, and a few more accommodations sit on Route 191 off the park's western border.
