A short and challenging hike. Well worth the effort. Bring lots of water and an adventurous spirit with you.

If you are interested in Native American Art, you must see the McConkie Ranch Pictographs. The detail is some of the best I've ever seen. It is on private property so please be respectful and thankful that the property owners share this amazing history art form. The small hut located in the parking lot offers a cash tip jar and...

Awesome area to visit and see the petroglyphs. We are a family of 8 and half of us did the hike in sandals. My youngest is 4 and loved climbing through the trail. A national park trail this is not, so take your time. It isn't super difficult but the rail is not really there for protection as much as... More

My husband and I went there today and it was amazing! The only concerns we had are the walking paths. Some of the areas are pretty knarly but do able. We will be making a return trip in a couple weeks with our 9 year old and 2 year old. We'll all be wearing hiking boots. Overall, it was a... More

This was my second time to McConkie Ranch. I was able to do the hike wearing sandals, and carrying two camera bodies. If you are to do this, wear hiking boots especially for the hike near the house which is fairly steep. The three kings hike is easier but longer. And, this hike has way more better petroglyphs than the... More

The hike is not easy for anyone with balance or knee problems. The safety rail ( a twine stretched from steel fence posts) are humorous. Take a walking stick along, it will help make the big steps up and down off the rocks. Wear hiking shoes, not running shoes.

Fun outing with the kids. We enjoyed our short hike around the property where you see lots of great petroglyphs in good condition. Parking is easy. There are picnic tables on site.

You can get really close to these. The trail is very steep but even with my heart condition I did fine. I would be nice if it told you how long the trail is.

We were VERY happy to have brought our walking sticks. They had some for use also - an excellent idea. As my title suggests, it was a hike but we also "scrambled" over rocks and took our time getting our footing right. Our 8 year old did a great job of leading out. the 5 year old was wondering if...
