My kids were NOT excited to see ancient Indian petroglyphs--who wants to see pictures scratched into rocks when you can watch Cartoon Network? Well, I dragged them away from the hotel pool and tv for this activity. In the end, they were very excited.
McConkie Ranch is located out of Vernal--about 20 minutes. The hike is not "hard" but I would not take anyone who is not a good hiker because the trail has shale rock and places you need to climb over rocks.
When my kids saw the first petroglyph, they were hooked. The experience was fabulous. Thank you to the family for opening up their land to strangers and allowing us to have this experience.
