Pleasant hike & petroglyphs at the end

It was an easy hike even for me. About a mile to the site where the ancients left petoglyphs. The water was very green and slimy and filled with bugs. The symbols were very... read more

First off, the map and location for this listing is incorrect. use the Forest Service websites directions to get you to the location. Unfortunately, it looks like a couple of reviewers used the TripAdvisor listing information and ended up in downtown Williams. On the Forest Service website (www.fs.usda.gov) search for Keyhole Sink Trail. Directions can be found there. If you're... More

Finding this place was tricky--Google has no idea where it's at. A nice trail through the woods, ends in a neat small canyon with petroglyphs. One has to be impressed these unprotected relics are still visible after so many years--you'll find more info online about recent vandalism and restoration. Please respect the sanctity when you find this treasure. Accurate directions... More

It was an easy hike even for me. About a mile to the site where the ancients left petoglyphs. The water was very green and slimy and filled with bugs. The symbols were very clear and the pictures we took came out great. Don't expect too much though.

A short, pleasant hike to a box canyon where you can view the petroglyphs. I am rating it 3 stars as it is (in my opinion) average. The hike, while not unpleasant, wasn't particularly interesting and the petroglyphs were significant from a historic perspective, but I don't know I'd drive an hour to see them as there were only 2...

There is nothing at the location indicated on the map provided except a few park benches next to the Zipline. If you want to see these I would follow the directions provided by reviewers who reference the need to undertake a short hike to the Keyhole Sink petroglyphs.

This is a very interesting place to visit. Followed directions to the snow play area, the trail head is right across the street, easy to find. The trail is about 1 mile to the sink and is a pretty easy hike. The trail is well defined and marked with the blue tags for the cross country skiing. When we got... More

There are more petroglyphs in Williams close to town. I grew up in Williams. In the early 60's I would hike (about 1 mile or more) to Flat Rock by the railroad tracks. Now the interstate runs right by it. You will find the common spiral plus some others. Someone please photograph this and put it on this website. My... More

For a great idea of how Native Americans used to live , this is the place. It's just outside of Williams, exit 171,park across the street in the Oak Hill snow play area , then go through the gate for a short easy hike on a trial clearly marked for cross country skiing with blue markers. It's at the very... More

I really didn't expect much, but the hike was very easy. We viewed petroglyphs on the walls, but the water fall was dry, due to this time of year. The registry was fun to look at to see who also visited the site. Folks from France and Germany come to mind. So they must spill over from Grand Canyon. Overall... More

I have lived in Williams for 11 years and have never seen the "Kaibab Petroglyphs". To see some petroglyphs in the area, take the Keyhole Sink trail for approx. 1 mile to a small box canyon. You will see drawings depicting a deer hunt. Please don't damage or deface. Deer Farm Rd exit to east on Old Rt 66. Park... More
