Historic Site
The Leo Petroglyph is a sandstone petroglyph containing 37 images of humans and other animals as well as footprints of each. The petroglyph is located near the small village of Leo, Ohio (in Jackson County, Ohio) and is thought to have been created by the Fort Ancient peoples (possibly AD 1000-1650). The area in which the sandstone petroglyph was found is on the edge of an unglaciated Mississippian sandstone cliff 20–65 feet high. To this day, the meanings of the drawings are unknown. On November 10, 1970, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The site is maintained by the Ohio Historical Society.

  • I love it here. A cool place to see and a nice trail to walk. Sometimes people ride horses on the trail too and I always love seeing horses!
  • The petroglyphs are pretty neat, the Woodland trails and scenery around it are beautiful.
  • Small excursion, cool petroglyphs. Covered so you can still see in the rain. Week worth the stop. This place is not attended but accessible 24/7.
  • Very interesting site
  • My kids were at awe seeing the petroglyph's
