  • We've tried both the Petroglyphs and Hidden Cave hikes. Both were fun. The cave hike was a little tougher, recommend the petroglyphs for families.  more »

  • If you are traveling the loneliest highway, US 50 take a chance and stop at Crimes Point. You will have a chance to see some pictographs. The hike is easy and it is short. No need for much equipment, most specimen are close to the trail. There are bathrooms and plenty of parking.
  • Cool place. So much to learn about the native people and landscape of this area. Take the time to stop at museum in Fallon to find times for a guided trip to the hidden cave.
  • This is nice place. There is a lot of history here. No one really knows what the engravings on the rocks mean but it is cool to look at them. There is a good view on top of the 2 mile hike.
  • It's a nice shady stopover. We didn't hike to see the petroglyphs
  • Very cool to see. It's worth the visit at least once.
