“Friendly Volunteers, Easy Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

We enjoyed this little stop on our trip to Sedona. It was a very easy walk to the petroglyphs. The volunteers were very nice, friendly, and informative.

“Large walls of Petroglyphs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

This site charge $5 to park, but the fee also covers other short hikes in the area. You have a short from the parking lot to the visitors center, where you pay, and then under a half mile walk to the site. There are interpretive guides there to help explain some of the meanings.

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014

One of the best and greatest examples of prehistoric rock art in North America. Truly outstanding and well worth a visit. The Forest Service guides are very knowledgeable and friendly.

“Short hike and intriguing historical site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014


This is the easiest hike to get to up closer to Native American Petroglyphs than other site in the Sedona area. The guide was very detailed on the history of how they were found and the possible reasons for its creation. This is not an overly traveled area so you can get some great close up pictures. My mother is handicapped and the path was not all the hilly so she could even take the trail on her scooter. This was a pleasantly surprising short but rewarding excursion.

“Well worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2014

We stopped here on our way from Sedona back to Phoenix, and we are glad we did! A short walk on flat ground to the site. Jim was the volunteer at the site. He was very knowledgeable and informative about the petroglyphs. I would recommend stopping here is you have an hour to spare.
