Best to go here in the Summer, a bit out of the town of Riverton and the last few miles are on a dirt road. New walkways and very interesting. We have met people from all around the world at this site.

The drive wasn't too bad. Eleven miles of dirt so don't go after a good rainstorm. Once you arrive, the scenery is breathtaking and you can hear a pin drop. However, there are no restrooms onsite. Bring water as it got pretty hot. The petroglyphs have been fenced in to prevent further vandalism but it's chain link so you can still see them. It's an easy hike but not very handicap accessible. Enjoy.

The Petrogliphs are very cool and give you a insight of the people that were there before the indians.

Took some good friends out this last summer and they very much enjoyed the visit, having never been to Castle Gardens. Great history that is in danger of going away due to vandalism, although the State has tried to protect a large portion of the Petroglyphs.

This is a great site that needs more attention. The shield petroglyphs are unique and I have never seen any like them before. There is a lot of graffiti and you can tell some of the petroglyphs have been stolen, but I am so glad I went. Wyoming this site is great!
