We were in Winslow for a volunteer experience with ANE and one of the group arranged for us to go to this "ranch". We brought a lunch and ate it before going down into the canyon. I have a little knee trouble and made it down ok, but had to have help getting back up. Not for handicapped people. Once... More

I found this in the AAA book and as we would be staying somewhay near by (at least by AZ standards) it sounded like it would by a worthwhile experience and it really was. The ranch is WAY out there. Brantley the owner gave us a most informative tour of the ranch and Indian artifacts he has put together. Then... More

We decided to visit this place after our trip to the Grand Canyon. Our party or three consisted my my daughter (15), Sister (55), myself (50). This trip was made up of two parts. You first meet up at a specific time (need reservations) at his ranch. He has hundreds of relics. Some regarding the native Indians, some of the... More

This was one of the most unique, fun places our family has ever visited! I was a little worried when we followed Brantley Baird's directions and bounced along the long gravel road to get there. However, once we arrived we were very impressed! Mr. Baird allowed us to eat our picnic lunch in his cool museum barn with tables and... More

This is one of those special places that you should not pass up. We want to thank Brantley Baird for allowing us to enjoy his ranch. You must call in advance to make reservations and the fee depends on your group but don't worry Brantley will tell you everything you need to know and does not mind answering questions. You... More

The ranch had been recommended by a guide in Bluff, Utah. We were not disappointed. If you enjoy western history, rock art and want to meet a couple " true cowboys" go to the ranch. About 40 minutes from Winslow,a good dirt road most of the way. The road brings you to a 5,000 acre ranch on the prairie. Homsteaded... More

Rock Art Ranch is known for its unique petroglyphs and they definitely are, particularly one which looks like it could be Cinderella and another which is a birthing scene. And the petrified wood and many pioneer and cowboy memorabilia are fascinating. But the real draw is Brantley Baird, the owner of Rock Art Ranch. His delightful, charming tales about every... More

Lest anyone think I'm negative on everything (I wrote two other reviews today that were quite critical of a couple of other Winslow places) my family and I LOVED this place! We had relatives who had been there before and they, too, highly recommended it. It is well worth the effort to contact the owner, get directions, drive out to... More

The ranch is a little hard to find but ask the ranch owner for directions when you call for reservations. He is a really cool dude. Be prepare to drive on dirt and gravel roads for at least 15 miles (you can't be the kind of person who has to have a perfectly clean car). The walk down into the... More
