  • It's out in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful drive. Not much to do though. The petroglyphs are awesome but there is nothing else there.  more »

  • Worth the few miles to get there. Self guided tour..many many interesting depictions. Also, interesting settlers scribes from early 1900s add to the record of this site. Highly recommend!
  • So cool. You get to see hundreds of unique petroglyphs from only a few feet away with almost zero effort. Our 7 year old was enthralled. Our 5 year old was mildly interested. Our 3 year old thought the flowers were pretty. No hiking and no binoculars needed. 20-30 minutes will allow you to see everything. Amazing history and culture.
  • Great stopping place. The petroglyphs are visible from the walkway and the location was isolated and quiet. Happily, the State of Utah has protected the petroglyphs from idiots with spray paint. While you're there, drive a few extra miles to the dinosaur tracks.
  • Fun place to see how and why the indians carved into the rocks. Educational.
  • A boatload of cool, a nice break from the road. Nice flat easily accessible area and a great place to stretch out your legs.
