We went early in the morning and had the forest ranger all to ourselves. The petroglyphs are outstanding. There are so many that it takes a while to see them all. Some date back several thousand years while others are more recent, about 1100 AD. The ranger was very knowlegable and enjoyed sharing his love of this wonderful site.

The ranch is cool, the petroglyphs are well worth seeing, but just walking the place is worth the visit.

Previous reviewers have pretty much said it all - great petroglyph site -- lots of markings in a very small area; paved road (although one lane in places); wonderful volunteers both at the small 'office' and at the site; short stroll along a flat grade from the parking lot to the site. The website had good information that we checked... More

If you are interested in symbols, Native American petroglyphs, there are some of the most amazing located on the V Bar V cattle ranch. It's no longer a working ranch. You must pay to go. Parking is plentiful. Go in the morning when it's cooler, although where the petroglyphs are located, there's plenty of trees and shade. There is always... More

This is a well-preserved site containing petroglyphs (images etched into the vertical rock) by the ancient Sinagua native Americans.

The wall of petroglyphs is very small, but full of very interesting and well preserved petroglyphs. It is only open a few days a week, so check before you go and take your camera. It will probably not have any sun on it. The grounds surrounding this area are not dramatic but some interesting history. Make sure you drive to... More

This is an easy walk. And a must see. If you really want to learn something listen to the guide/volunteer at the destination. We spent at least 1 hour listening, and exchanging thoughts. It was such a pleasurable and educational experience!

We hit v-v on our way back to Phoenix and our trip home and we were not disappointed. It's a bit of a walk across a level stretch to get to the petraglyphs, but once there, you are greeted by a very knowledgeable ranger who answers any and all questions. A stellar experience!

On this busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we decided to head south, away from Sedona to VBarV. The volunteers on site make it educational and enjoyable. The round trip walk is less than a mile and a level grade. https://picasaweb.google.com/112751208865525671114/VBarV?authkey=Gv1sRgCK78wczZsNHaaw
