This place actually is right behind our neighborhood and we had no idea. We were out playing in our sxs and saw the sign for it. It’s a rough road to it and a fun little walk to see them. Very interesting place.

Fun place to take kids. Easy hiking around the hill to see many petroglyphs. Doesn't take a lot of time to explore. The road is marginal to get there; gravel and dusty. Go when it isn't hot.

This place is not hard to find once you get good directions. Had to go to Google to get the coordinates. Take highway 7 east from I15. Go to river road and take the gravel road heading south. You will see a petroglyph sign within...More

This remote site is a bit of a drive off the beaten bath over rocky dirt roads and a few dry washes but well worth the trip while in St. George. A rare opportunity to see well preserved petroglyphs up close with few (if any)...More

This is just our kind of place - a long 7 mile drive across the desert and then one other person there! Very nice place, preserved in place for those with an adventuresome spirit. Beautiful, ancient rock art scratched in desert varnish. Go for it!

Had a wonderful time sharing with each other our interpretation of the petroglyphs. The rock formations were cool too! We were surprised that they had a covered picnic table and an outhouse.

There’s a rough dirt road to get to this site. You can make it in a car if you go when it’s dry and go slow. A suv or truck will have zero problems. The first hill is the worst part of it. There’s a...More

It's a cool area. The petroglphs are neat but really loved all the rock formations - so many different rocks everywhere - fun to imagine how they got to where they rested... It was a different experience than hiking the canyons - nice way to...More

Short drive on the highway to a dirt road to get there. Was really neat just thinking of how long ago these were drawn and what they were thinking at the time.
