If you are interested in Rock Art, this place should be on your list. The highlight of this trip is the Rock Art, but I also enjoyed the natural beauty of the canyon and the family's collection of old farm and ranching equipment. The Baird family has done an excellent job of preserving the past, both recent and not so... More

Mr. Baird and family have provided a great service to preserve the petroglyphs in the canyon and Anasazi pieces. A typical visit is probably 3-4 hours at a minimum, and the unpaved road to/from will add an additional 45 minutes each way from Winslow, so be prepared to commit 4-5 hours. The petroglyphs are good, with some distinct renderings. I... More

We were allowed to view rock art early, needed in order to make it to Hopi mesas in time. Hopi ancestors were responsible for some of the rock art, which covers archaic to P-IV, meaning millenia. Kudos to the Bairds for keeping this lovely canyon and rock art pristine. Next time we'll visit the museum.

I read about the ranch when we were in winslow so we decided to call and try to get an appointment. We were able to reserve spaces the next day and were so glad we did. This was a truly unique experience. Brantley the owner of the ranch and his daughter Sandy were fascinating and informative. The experience is divided... More

This private ranch has (apparently) the largest collection of prehistoric petroglyphs in the country. You must reserve ahead and be taken to the canyon site - a lovely stream sunk into steep rock walls that are covered with ancient art carved into the stone. You can explore at your leisure, and there's even a covered pavilion above the stream for... More

Mr. Baird made our trip so great! He was very hospitable and didn't cringe when we brought our 4 kids into his museum. In fact, when it came time to go to the canyon, he loaded up our kids and a couple more to ride with him on his 4x4. They loved it! My kids loved exploring the Native American... More

My husband and I attended the Ranch this last month. The road to the ranch is an off beaten path. You might feel lost on the way but that means you’re on the right road. We arrived at the Ranch and when Mr.Baird tells you, the ranch is on the middle of nowhere you really are! WHAT A SITE! The... More

I have been to a number of places with petroglyphs. Usually you are craning to see them, looking at them through binoculars, or through one of those tubes pointed at a wall where you need to look. Many of these places are mobbed with people, and it is certainly not easy to enjoy some piece and quiet while observing the... More

This is the best kept secret in Arizona. Brantley Baird has the ability to bring the long ago past to the present with the unique artifacts displayed in the huge barn-museum. The buffalo in the pen, the bunkhouse used by the Hash Knife gang, and the canyon of thousands of petroglyphs are all part of the mystique. It is certainly... More

A visit to Rock Art Ranch is a memorable experience more due to the people rather than the site although the site complete with artifacts and petroglyphs makes quite an impression too. Mr. Brantley Baird and his wife open up their ranch to strangers daily (except Sundays and holidays) for a glimpse into what their pioneer/cowboy families built up over... More
