This is a great experience. This is far off of pavement and a decent hike but very doable. Walked where ancient civilizations walked and we created our own stories of how they must have lived. A good family experience. We did this in a Honda but road conditions were very good at the time. We did have good studded snow... More

When you take the trouble to see this panel, you will never forget it. Very few people do, so you are usually by yourself at the panel. It is so stunning to see in person, not just in pictures. Very well worth the day to see. You will need to take a 4WD vehicle just to be sure.

Went with family. Great hike. Beautiful canyon with lots of petroglyphs to see. Better if you go with the ranger-led hike so you can get closer to the Great Gallery It is moderately strenous.

Horseshoe Canyon and the Great Gallery, was an experience I'll never forget! Have a vehicle with high clearance, and 4 wheel drive, because there is 30 miles of sandy roads that you can't navigate easily or go faster than 20 miles and hour if you're in a regular rental. Also, before you've started out on this adventure, you better know... More

A 6.5 mile round trip starts with a canyon wall descent = .9 mi and 600 feet, followed by a beautiful walk up a winding canyon. Three galleries of pictographs of varying types and ages. The Great Gallery is the final stop at 3.2 miles. Amazing figures approx 3000-5000 years old. We went in October when the weather was perfect... More
