This stop would be a complete waste of time, because it's nothing more then a upgraded piece of graffiti sprayed on rocks. Should you decide to visit it anyway, because you have too much time on your hands or whatever, make sure you have a...More

This is a really spectacular quick stop and the paintings are preserved quite well. I was worried about the road but it was totally passable and I was able to drive right up -- even with a light drizzle.

Worth the effort to take the short drive up the hill on a gravel road to see the large colorful rock murals. The numerous large murals are very artistic and creative. A better perspective can be had by walking further up the road about a...More
