  • I recommend visiting this heritage site. The ranger provided a lot of interesting information about the petroglyphs.

  • This out-of-the-way attraction is an incredible look into the past. Just $5 per car, you're a half mile walk away from 800+ year old petroglyphs. Pay attention to the hours, as this attraction does close fairly early in the day. A very knowledgeable tour guide is waiting at the petroglyphs to explain their history and meaning.
  • Wow, just something to be easily overlooked as there are few signs on the main roads. It's an easy turn off I. 17 at the Sedona exit. Just go East about a half mile and follow the signs. Well preserved petroglyphs about 1/4th mile walk from parking.
  • Easy hike to incredibly preserved petroglyphs over 13 rock panels, the largest collection in the area. Knowledgeable park service staff spoke about the ancient tribes, the meanings of the carvings, and the current tribal issues. Don't forget to check out the visitor center for detailed maps to other locations.
  • Many thanks to the cheery crew this Monday morning for my first-thing, post-holiday, happenstance, first-ever visit! I’d read a touch of Ken Zoll (there on Saturdays!) but never seen the real McCoy, until now (but for Mr. Zoll I’ll have to wait ;) Most especially for Don the Docent who walked me down the path onto many fresh insights and views with great details and photos and books that really broadened my horizons, just like a sun glyph or two or three or... !!!!
  • I had heard there was a sun dial at the V-Bar-V Heritage Site, so I went as close to the September equinox as I could to see if it were true, and it is! I had a wonderful visit. The volunteer staff were extremely knowledgeable. I walked out knowing a lot more than when I walked in. The hike in is only about 1/3 of a mile and is mostly flat. There is a well kept bathroom at the visitor's center. I'll be going back.
