Both Hikes are nice to do. Some are hard to see, but they are super neat. I would recommend coming in the morning before it gets too hot.

Great place to hike and explore petroglyphs for the family. Donations taken and well worth the few dollars to see this amazing art.

There are some petroglyphs in the area, but these, here, are -- I think -- most amazing... If you are into this type of attraction, then tis is a definite -- go there and have fun thinking about our ancestors...

This place is definitely off the beaten path, but absolutely worth it! The hike can get a bit tough in a couple spots, but the petroglyphs were amazing! They ask for a small donation and you should leave one. It’s wonderful that they allow us...More

A bit off the beaten path, the most Petroglyphs I have ever seen in one place. Unreal and fun for a family with older children. Climb is a bit hard on a hot day, but path is very well marked, well worth the walk!

These are located on private property. You can make donations and should. The petroglyphs are amazing. The hike up and along the ridge is strenuous but worth it.

Amazing! We googled "what to do in Vernal" and this came up, what a gem!! This family has graciously allowed access to these ancient pictographs/petroglyphs, by donation on the honour system. TWO areas to check out. We just so happened to run into a local...More

Stopped in to view and these were amazing. Wished we would have had more time to make our self interpretations. Takes about 20 minutes to walk to and 20 minutes to get back once parked. Plan accordingly for good walking shoes and weather. Great find.

I suppose you could. I saw no signs saying you couldn't. The path to climb is narrow, but no problem for a dog.
