    This is an amazing part of prehistoric history, seeing the paintings that were created over 700 years ago. Beautiful spot for the inhabitants to live protected from animals and other advisories.
    As of October 13th 2022, The road was closed just before the McClure Canyon road, due to heavy flooding washing out the road. we parked at 31.472619, -110.354462, a parking area just off the road, near the closed gate.
    It is a relatively easy 2 mile hike on the rough road uphill to the first site, the 2nd site is just a 3 min walk up the road around the next bend. Several waterfalls and beautiful creek side areas to rest and soak in the beauty. took us one hour up, 40 min at the sites and 40 min back. the travel time includes stops to admire the beauty.
    We saw Turkey and Deer along with lots of birds along the hike.
    There is a wooden bridge at both locations and a short easy climb up on railroad ties, well placed rocks and other steps to the pictographs.
    An Eagle Scout has built a deck with bench seats to rest and enjoy the art at the first site. Both sites are protected with a chain link fence to prevent more graffiti from being added to the site. The second site has most of the graffiti damage. Google maps is inaccurate, you need to go through Ft. Huachuca to drive up Garden Canyon Road which starts at the Range Control building off of Winrow ave. If you are not military, you need a visitors pass obtained at the Fort Huachuca Visitor's Center.

    Always a Peaceful, filled with beauty. You can go as high as you want, there are many layers to Carr Canyon. We drove half way and hiked the rest.

    Beautiful location just South of Sierra Vista. Easy to get to, plenty of parking at the trail head. Nice out and back hike; plenty of shade on the trail that follows the creek up the canyon. The trail is not marked but fairly easy to follow. Good for kids on the lower part of the trail. Good for pets.
