Not too bad a walk in from the parking lot. Pictographic stories from days gone by. A worthwhile trip anytime the weather is not threatening. You will be out of cell range, so make sure you have your car operating properly, and people know where...More

It's a little bit of a drive out to see these, but very beautiful scenery! It's not a long hike from the car to see them, we couldn't believe how well preserved they are!

About 45 minutes from Rock Springs this is a hidden gem - fairly isolated, it is a step back in time into a mystery of the Past. The trip itself is worth it - over 10 miles are on a well maintained dirt/gravel road with...More

We took the risk to see these petroglyphs which included driving a little long, off-beaten dirt road path (see other visitor's recommendations about precautions with this kind of travel-we had a 4-door sedan and didn't have any problems, but it was summer and the road...More

You're looking at ancient petroglyphs in a stunning setting. Catch them on a sunny, clear day with our deep blue skies and the contrast between buff sandstone, green junipers and blue sky is breathtaking. Decent dirt roads lead to the parking area with a handy,...More
