Truly an amazing site, many of the etchings go 40 to 50 feet below the sand level and are hundreds of years old. A few of the more common ones have been translated but the rest remain a mystery. « less

Grapevine Canyon lies a couple of miles down a dirt road to Christmas Tree Pass. The sign says 4x4 recommended, but we and the other people there that day did fine in regular 2-wheel-drive passenger cars. The road gets a bit rough and washboard-y at times, so you may have to take it slow or endure a bumpy ride. There... More

I've been to Laughlin several times and never knew this was here until I looked at Trip Advisor! So glad we had the opportunity to get there. We only had a couple of hours and would have liked to spend more time. Very peaceful and serene place, easy hike to get to the petroglyphs.

My husband and I drove up to Grapevine in the late afternoon. It was an easy hike to the petroglyphs and well worth the time. I was amazed how quiet the desert is in the early evening. The sun began setting and turned the desert gold and pink. There are more petroglyphs there than I had ever seen. It was... More

This is a well kept 'secret'; but worth a little drive and a hike. There are petroglyphs along the sides of Grapevine Canyon; you just have to look up! it is a fairly easy hike and worth a little rock climbing to find small springs and water sources. Grapevine Canyon is west of Laughlin off the highway going toward Las... More

If you happen to be in the area, please do yourself a favor and visit Grapevine Canyon, especially if you are interested in Native American history. This is a hidden gem. It's an easy hike but make sure to bring water and wear proper shoes. Weather can be brutal in the summer. I was told that spring is the best... More

What a great place for a short and challenge hike. It is only 75 miles from Las Vegas and 12 miles from Laughlin. Be sure to bring a plenty of water and food. Dogs are welcome.

This is the ONLY worthwhile stop in Laughlin- bring your own food and don't plan on sleeping in Laughlin- it's disgusting. But if you are driving through- and have to stop hiking this canyon is RAD! See the petroglyphs but go further into the canyon- you won't be sorry! It is beautiful. The only awesome thing about Laughlin!

It's a dirt road but any car drive there no problem. Once you park you then walk a short trail to the petroglyphs. If you want you can hike alot farther back thru the canyon. It

We hiked grapevine canyon and were lucky enough to evesdrop on a(Ranger) tourguide's informative presentation. Lots of petroglyphs here! This is indeed a sacred place. 10 minutes from Laughlin makes this an easy 1/2 day outing.
