  • So wonderful to find such a remarkable place. There is even a host cat to purr and give you cat loves as you are leaving your recommended donation. We were the only people there and had the entire pla...  more »
  • We arrived, gave our $2 donation, then hit the nearest trail. We climbed/walked/hiked for at least a half hour and saw many petroglyphs. It’s sometimes hard to discern the fakes from the authentic one...  more »
  • 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 »

  • Amazing glyphs. Don't miss The Three Kings panel. It's worth the hike. Binoculars are highly recommend for The Three Kings.
  • 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!
  • If you are a student of "The Ancient Ones" this is a site you"ll relish. Up close and personal petroglyphs and insite into real ranch life.
  • 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!
