Wonder heritage site of ancient Native American Petroglyphs. We had the benefit of listening to a park employee explain the meaning and importance of several of the Petroglyphs. Just a short 10 minute walk from the check in area. Hummingbirds, squirrels, and deer were among...More

Very easy walk to the petroglyph site. Volunteers do a very good job of telling the story of the wall. We had Jim and he was excellent. There is also a movie that you can watch in the visitor center.

Most destinations in AZ involve a long hike either up or down a hill. This one, originally a ranch, is a relatively short walk on level land. You can hear Beaver Creek but fencing prevents you from leaving the path. There is one small hill...More

If you're visiting the Sedona area and want to see ancient petroglyphs, this is the place to go. It's a short walk (a few hundred yards) on a gravel path to get to the actual petroglyphs. We visited on a Friday and there was a...More

The V Bar V Ranch has, on it's property, some of the most stunning, well preserved petroglyphs that I've ever seen. The docent did a fantastic job of explaining their history, and meaning (though much of it is still a mystery). The site has a...More

Since this site required crossing through a private ranch until the Park Service was able to obtain it in 1995, the petroglyphs are virtually untouched (except for one errant cowboy’s initials from the 1930’s!) The park ranger who explained the calendar was very knowledgeable and...More

Go here! This is absolutely worth the trip. You need to walk maybe 0.25 mile out to see the petroglyphs, but they are absolutely amazing.

This was my second time at V-Bar-V Heritage Site. This visit was much better than the first one (5 years ago). The docent was fabulous. His hour long presentation included explanations of the petroglyphs as well as the calendar. Great visual aids as well.

The place has pretty short hours to begin with. It was full shade when I visited, it was early afternoon. I'm sure are better times but most of the petroglyphs are pretty clear. There are some older weathered petroglyphs too... More

I don't know off hand, but because it is part of the National Parks, hours should be online. One more thing, several pay and no pay National Parks options, so if you have the National Parks pass it will save you money.
