V Bar V is a short drive from Sedona and a recommended stop on your trip. The site is the home to pyraglyphics that were inscribed around 6,000 BC. It is a short presentation by a knowledgeable volunteer guide interpreting the inscriptions. It was very educational and we are glad we made it a stop on our trip.

A bit of a walk from the parking lot to the small visitor check in. It has a small store and information area. From there it is an easy walk to a small section of preserved history. You can not touch the rock and sadly some is covered with fungal type growth with lack of sunshine. We had a fantastic... More

The center of this site is a long, deep wall filled with petroglyphs from centuries ago. It's located on what was previously a working ranch, which makes it even cooler to think that even a hundred years ago, the owners protected it from damage and vandalism. Our Ranger was marvelous...he'd learned what all the of the symbols stood for and... More

Out of the way, non-advertised site to which we were referred by a park ranger at another site. Property was privately owned and fenced off for many years, so they made sure the art was undisturbed and well-preserved. Very interesting and worth the side trip. The ranger was extremely knowledgeable.

The Ranger was great! He was very knowledgeable & able to get children involved with his stories and questions after. Thousands of petroglyph's above ground as well as below according to our guide. With the movement of the sun you can see a whole new set of petroglyph's. Very interesting to see these figures and shapes and learn what they... More

... and mind taking a bit of time from your travels along I-17, then treat yourself. This is a surprisingly interesting and intriguing stop. The resident docent, volunteer rangers are wonderful and help explain some of the mysteries behind one of the best preserved petroglyph sites in the southwest. This is particularly a good venue for photographers. You'll need to... More

We've been to V Bar V several times, and each visit reveals something new. The Forest Rangers and volunteers interpreters are terrific. Plan to visit at different times of the year (the solstices would be the best) and at different times of the day as the sun reveals new things about the petroglyphs.

I've wanted to see petroglyphs for years, and decided that it was time. Although on a small scale, it is still spell-bounding to look upon something left by ancient civilizations. The hike was pleasant (lots of bugs hopping around), and the guide was very informative. Overall, it fulfilled something on my bucket list. I'll visit again and go to another... More

Came here by way of the dirt road leaving Montezuma's Well. Only about 15 minutes away. This was a medium flat walk from the parking lot to visitors center and then to the pictograph panels. Maybe 1/4 mile each way. It is a very neat rock art panel if you like this kind of thing. Volunteer at the site was... More

The heritage site is a bit remote and out of the way, but well worth the trip. The main feature is a cliff face of petroglyphs. The roughly one hour talk given by an outstanding and knowledgeable guide (a volunteer and former master teacher no less) was one of the high points of our week-long vacation.
