Wolfe Ranch Rock Art, 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.

  • Petroglyphs are a short walk from the trail leading to the delicate arch. It's just a little bit zachazka and standing. Are some of the best, on which we have come across.

  • Don't forget to take this small spur trail off of the Delicate Arch trail to see this interest rock art panel. It is quite close to the Delicate Arch parking lot.
  • Definitely worth a side trip! Take the trail past Wolfe Ranch toward Delicate Arch and look for the sign pointing to the left. It's not far. The art is very easy to see and beautiful to boot.
  • Great hike and history!
  • Very short hike to some easily-accessible and very clear petroglyphs.
  • Good preserved dwellings of early settlers. Next to the parking lot.
