I enjoyed this place more than in Albuquerque. Unfortunately, we went during the heat of the day, which was miserable but still worth it. It's certainly a bit of a hike to get up to the drawings, and you do need to be somewhat fit...More

The southwest is covered with pre-cColumbian sites. They are basically anywhere you'd choose to search, yet it's the searching part that wed don;t often have time for when not on a dedicated trip or expedition. When traveling for work I like to add an easier...More

Reading reviews I though we could see petroglyphs from the base trail, but we did see any. You would have to scramble to the top which i also read you need good shoes and the ability to climb rocks. That is not on our senior...More

More Petroglyphs in a canyon west of stables. Take County Road 56C to BLM gated trail entrance at bottom of hill. Hike towards power lines near canyon and go west into canyon.

I had never even heard of these petroglyphs until I was trying to find something unique to see and do within the City of Santa Fe. The site was very easy to find, with plenty of parking and a short well-marked trail leading to the...More

We walked all around these petroglyphs and they were very clear - hard to believe how old they are. Definitely need sturdy shoes with good rock-climbing soles. And if heights bother you, it's doubtful you'd make it to the top. But, lots to see along...More

Free walk on a well marked trail. Along the ridge there are a plethora or petroglyph sites. You can take a longer trail or a gentle 1.5 miles trail with a decent climb.

It's very sad to see that (stupid) people have carved their won initials and designs along side the historic petroglyphs here. They should be sent to jail.

This was even better that expected. Short drive from Santa Fe. Google maps will get you to the small parking lot with Park sign. You follow white arrows towards the cliffs and go left along the fence line for 1/4-1/2 mile and you will see...More

I believe you can! I did not see any signs posted otherwise, and it's not a national park. You are walking on a hill over and around rocks, and its warm there, so bring water for your dog and a leash in case others are... More

Some are recent fakes/copies. Most are more than 700 years old. There are no interpretive signs, so research before you go.
