These geoglyphs are definitely not as universally well known as the Nazca lines, and maybe not quite as 'spectacular', i.e. huge as their Peruvian counterparts - size does count; at least for the wow-effect - but they are certainly very impressive nevertheless. Easily accessible down...More

The two human figures and critter are easily seen. Short hikes from the parking areas. The road was fairly easy to drive. A couple places may need slow winding path. The figures are fenced in but you can get a nice view of them. The...More

This is a very curious attraction. We can't know for certain what the purpose of these figures might have been, so it leaves one with a mysterious feeling. We had difficulty find the Intglios, but were glad we were able to see this amazing site.

A short stroll from the closest parking lot and you come across the first ones. They are big, interesting and I'm really glad to of had a chance to experience them first hand. If you keep walking there are more so go exploring.

Blythe isn't anywhere close to a big town so you must be lost. Interesting for a quick check to look at if you are out at the rive. Road in is not bad as long as you aren't used to being on pavement 24/7. Go...More

Being from Hawaii,where you can find petroglyphs that were constructed by the first settler of the islands, I was intrigued with these geoglyphs. First of all, all the descriptions of these marvels said that they were HUGE They are not. The largest I estimate is...More

A little hard to find and they are a little hard to see from the ground, but you still should visit these. Also drive up the service road, there is a stacked rock "garden" that is just strange, the road to this is not the...More

Easy to find and walk to. I wouldn't consider walking over to them hiking! We wore shorts & sandals. To bad there isn't a viewing stand of some kind. You have to try and see them from behind a chain link fence and you don't...More

A nice hike to see these interesting figures. Just don't expect them to be well marked and road in unpaved and rough.

These figures are very easy to find and really quite fascinating and mysterious. We had seen similar figures at other locations, but these were just as impressive. It made us wonder who made them and why.

Yes, but don't go further than the second parking parking area. We continued up the trail looking for the third site, and it was rough and rutted. We were in a jeep with high clearance.
