There are several easily viewable rock art sites along scenic byway 279 (the paved portion of Potash Road). Unless you have a high clearance four wheel drive, do not drive past the end of the pavement. Any vehicle can make the easy drive along the...More

We had an hour before an activity and Scenic byway 279 was a great option. You pass by Wall Street where people are climbing. Then you come across petroglyphs which are quite impressive. Further up the byway you can turn off for a short hike...More

If you're interested in petroglyphs, this is a wonderful site. Get out of your car and walk along the road by the sign. Look carefully, all of a sudden you'll see petroglyphs everywhere, communicating from the ancient past. Magical.

If it was not for our tour guide (Phil from Nactev) I would have missed these. He even told us his interpretation of them. A must see.

There were several places on this road with good petroglyphs. One site is well marked with a sign. The sites are not all marked in hopes of keeping people from vandalizing the ones within easy reach. It's very important if you find any of these...More

Sorry for the delay. Yes, you can park on the side of the road and walk right across to the other side and see them. No hiking, biking, or off road travel required.
