Good exercise, but could have benefitted from having a tour guide. Can sign up for a tour at the museum in town.
Please do not deface the petroglyphs here. They date back thousands of years and can not be replaced. It can be a bit strenuous even on the trails when its hot so visit in the am if in the summer time. Its only about 5 miles from town so is an easy drive. The trails are easy to walk but... More
For some reason I confused Grimes Point with a place (which I would later learn was Hickison Petroglyph Area) we had visited years ago on a trip through the 50. I was telling my son how cool it was walking through the huge rocks with carvings on them. But when we arrived at Grimes, I quickly figured out this wasn't... More
Nice place to take a walk or hike with the dogs or family. I would go before it gets too hot. Interesting petroglyphs but you can see where people have chipped some off to take, which is too bad. Just leave it alone!

we hiked and followed the petroglyph trails. we also went to the hdden cave and hiked and were amazed at the gentle yet awesome trails and the beauty of the well preserved petroglyphs and cave sites
I went on this mini-hike up a dusty mountain to explore these 7,000 year old rocks with petroglyphs a few years ago, 2005 i think. My recent visit Thanksgiving 2008, many of these artifacts were damaged and purposefully broken apart. There is a lot of grafitti and chisel marks. The sign-in box was even burned. I only gave it low... More

Get off onto the road through Grimes Point. There is a circular road to the right side of the Grimes Point main road. Turn onto it and... More
