My husband and I are world travelers. I've been to some of the most beautiful sights in the world. But let me tell you there is NOTHING more unique and special than Rock Art Ranch. The Baird family makes sure you feel welcome. Brantley is the realist American cowboy you will ever meet. His granddaughter Tori is right by his... More

The Bairds are great stewards of this natural treasure. The canyon is serene and they have built a very nice covered picnic area overlooking the canyon. Plan on having a picnic lunch there. Also, you need 3.5 to 4 hours to do this activity justice. It is not something that you drop in for a half hour and can leave.... More

Rock Art Canyon Ranch lives up to its name in spades! That said, the drive from Winslow was a tad daunting. Did not quite understand Mr. Baird's directions. Big shout out to Google Maps who got us there anyway. The ranch is picturesque, with wide vistas of open range, numerous examples of petrified wood, the last known bunkhouse, and a... More

We loved the tour of his ranch, the pottery, and rock art in the canyon on his property. Allow at least four hours, bring water, a picnic and a warm layer to wear just in case.

The tour Bradley gives is wonderful, this is a cattle ranch with wonderful secrets. The artifacts found, the history then you are on your own to descend the same stairs the ancients used to get the stream and oodles of petroglyphs...

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
