  • What a neat little find in the middle of the desert. I am happy we took the exit because it wasn't on our list of things to do. It was about 120 degrees out but we still checked it out. No services. There is a bathroom. And an "on your honor" payment process for parking. PAY! It keeps the people employed that keep the place clean.
  • I am a sucker for archeological sites and will go out of my way to see them. I have passed the sign a number of times and I finally made it to the Painted Rock Petroglyphs. It is pretty awesome to see something that has been there for many many years. It is only 11 miles from Interstate 8 so it won't cut too much into your allotted travel time. I even saw two roadrunners crossing the road the morning I went. Don't even question it and just go.
  • Fun place to stop while driving to Phoenix it has some good information to read up on while walking through the path. A good time!
  • Petroglyphs were impressive and easily accessible. I would visit again, to experience this peaceful place.
  • I drove 11 miles off of the highway in the mid day desert heat hoping to see something a little more than what I found. It is very cool to see the different petroglyphs, but it is desolate, super hot, and out of cell signal range. If your car is in danger of overheating, don't make the trek. If it's early or late day, cooler out, and you have kids with you, this is an educational spot.
