The rock art was easy to walk up to. I have not seen some of the symbols before. The road is paved. Good for families.

This little site is maintained in simple but loving form. Nothing fancy or "modern" but things were clean, there was honor system water in the 40-year-old fridge and many notes of thanks in the rickety little shed. There are a couple porta-potties and a requested...More

We took our family on the shorter hike right from the parking lot and it was awesome. Our 4 and 6 year old could easily walk the loop themselves, and it was fun to see surprises around every corner. This is not an easy hike...More

We enjoyed the visit. No entrance fee but an honor box suggesting $5 per vehicle. Very rustic and interesting. I enjoyed reading the notes ppl left and left one myself. I appreciate the honor system of the drinks and parking and made it feel like...More

This was so awesome to check out! The hike isn't terrible for adults, we did take my three year old and we had to carry her back down (Noticed another party doing the same with a young child.) We didn't get to finish the full...More

The McConkie Ranch Petroglyph Site is worth the drive out of Vernal to see, but it's not the best petroglyph site in the area--for that visit the Titled Rock area of Dinosaur Nat'l Monument. At the ranch you'll find a parking are lined with antlers,...More

We went out a gorgeous canyon drive to get to this place. It had a sweet building with hundreds of post it notes all over the walls. But, the trail was ridiculous. It was almost straight up and down with rocks and boulders. I never...More

What a great stop. Thanks to the family that has made this accessible to the public. This place is just a few miles outside of Vernal and is pretty easy to find. The hike up to the images is pretty short, but it is really...More

The petroglyphs are amazing and varied. It's a short hike to see the sites and are better accessed with hiking boots. Tennis shoes will suffice but boots would be better.

We visited the ranch on a Thursday morning around 10am and another family was just finishing their hike, leaving us to enjoy the petroglyphs by ourselves. We spent about an hour on the trail. It was cool and quiet. The hike was moderately strenuous, going...More
