Ample parking than up the hill you go. The path is not ADA compliant. Picnic Tables and bathrooms are there. Looking hard on the rock for the stone markings and finding some. Wonder what they mean?

Great tour for people who love Native American history or archaeological sites. Being preserved for future generations to see petroglyphs, and tools from an era gone by. Nice moderate hike, short distance but rocky and hot in the summer. Picnic area and restrooms available.

There are a few petroglyphs left. It is worth seeing once. I remember as a kid seeing this place and it seemed like there were many more. Of course that was 50 years ago. Hwy 50 is a long highway so a few minutes just...More

While there are better ancient Native American places in Nevada, this is certainly worth a stop on your way across Highway 50. There is a nice trail that shows you the best petroglyphs. You can also see some interesting geology along the way.

We've tried both the Petroglyphs and Hidden Cave hikes. Both were fun. The cave hike was a little tougher, recommend the petroglyphs for families.

If you want to see Indian petroglyphs up close and personal, this is the place. It's a short, easy walk. Take your time and look around!

Don't expect massive ruins or even interactive displays at this location, but if you want to see the hard scrabble life that the prehistoric people of this place once lived, stop here.

Quite easy to find. Head east on US 50 from downtown Fallon for about 10 miles, you will see signs on the right, follow the gravel road a few of hundred yards to the area.
