Coming from Phoenix, head North on I-17. Take exit 298 for State Hwy 179. Instead of making a left onto 179 for Sedona, turn right onto what is Forest Rd 618. Just follow the signs and drive about 2 & 1/2 miles and you'll reach the parking lot. Stop in at the Visitor Center before heading to the actual petroglyph... More

My group lucked into a guided tour on our way to the airport. Our guide was responsible for making our stop exceed expectations. The interpretation of petroglyphs and the Sinagua people were amazing. Without a guide, you basically just have a petroglyph photo opp through a fence. The property is in a lovely valley surrounded by rolling green foothills. There... More

The area is small but the rock face is just covered with symbles. There was a volintear ranger there that explained how the calendar worked and... More

We went to see the largest site of petroglyphs in the Sedona area. So interesting and the site is preserved quite well and the petroglyphs are easy to see. There is a volunteer Park Ranger on site to review and inform visitors of what the believed interpretation is of the wall coverings. Very interesting and worth the short drive from... More

Fantastic site - the richest collection of ancient glyphs of all the local destinations. Easy walk to the glyph wall. Friendly docents do a good job of explaining how little we really know about these ancient symbols. Note that this site is near the intersection of highways 17 and 179, in the opposite direction from Sedona. The dirt road between... More

The Ranger at the visitors center recommended this place. We went here after visiting Montezuma's Castle as it's not far from there on your way back into Sedona. It was a beautiful spring day and the sky was so blue. We went here right before closing and checked in. We had a very nice walk by ourselves through the ranch... More

Great display of history. The rocks were shaped so the sun's shadows point to the summer and winter solstice, which were so critical in days gone by. The petroglyphs are in excellent condition, and the ranger does a great job explaining what the experts think they tell us. The path out from the parking lot is solid, with benches to... More
