“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I agree with the other reviews: Directions to the site are easy to follow; it's a pleasant walk from the parking area (use your US Forest Service Red Rock Pass, or buy one here and use it extensively in the area) through old-growth trees along Beaver Creek; the display area is compact but has lots of petroglyphs to see; and the ranger and docent are both very pleasant, well educated and extremely informative folks!

“Tons Of Petrogliphs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is a relatively accessible area to see a ton of petroglyphs. In the spring sometimes there are events with docents volunteering on site.

“Up Close View of Work of the Ancients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The best place in the area to see petroglyphs up close and personal. Its a bit out of the way and not heavily advertized so it is not over run. The hosts are vols but very personable and knowledeable. Definate MUST.

“Great Petroglyphs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

A bit off the normal route it is very accessible from the Interstate. Located in a nice valley with good birding opportunities. I was a bit disappointed by the limited display. What was there was very nice just more limited than some other sites I have visited.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We went early in the morning and had the forest ranger all to ourselves. The petroglyphs are outstanding. There are so many that it takes a while to see them all. Some date back several thousand years while others are more recent, about 1100 AD.
The ranger was very knowlegable and enjoyed sharing his love of this wonderful site.
