  • McConkie Ranch may not be real well known? We found out about it by visiting the Utah Field House in Vernal. It turned out to be a great 'suggested viewing'. First, it's a ways out of town, it's a two...  more »
  • I just returned from an extensive trip to Utah and this was the highlight of the trip. I explored the McConkie Ranch petroglyphs and was so delighted. I thought these were some of the best petroglyphs...  more »

  • Great stop. You can meet the woman who grew up there. The trail along the cliffs showing all the petroglyphs is amazing. It's a short and easy hike for any skill level. You can purchase a water or soda when you're finished. Highly recommended!!!
  • A must-see if you're interested in rock art and inclined to hike. The petroglyphs are amazing. Also, it's remarkable to be allowed to see these historical treasures on private property. The ranch owners are gracious, so throw a couple bucks in the donation can, be respectful of the 'glyphs (don't carve your name in the rock walls or anything dumb like that), and enjoy the experience. Pack water and watch for snakes!
  • Really neat to see some of the carvings. The ones along the three kings trail are great. Be sure to ask the couple that owns it to see inside their collection of old stuff, definitely the best part!
  • Nice hike with some climbing but not too strenuous. Awesome petroglyphs & pictographs! A photog's dream.
  • Some of the best views of petroglyphs in the country. Fairly easy to moderate and short hiking trails. Make sure to visit both trails. So worth it!
