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

My father-in-law lives nearby and had always talked about showing me this area. It's a good little drive out in the middle of nowhere but very beautiful once you arrive. We climbed around for hours and it seemed would never see them all in one...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

I can't believe my husband and father followed my vague directions to drive into the desert, but I'm glad they did! It was a cool and foggy day in Oct. 2015 when we went, but the roads were still drive-able in a small rental sedan....More

I read all the reviews here about vandalism to the petroglyphs prior to visiting, and they were right. That being said, I found the trip worthwhile. County Road 17 seems to have been recently graded: any car could make this drip in dry conditions. Be...More

Had a great time visiting the white mountain petroglyphs in Wyoming. The drive is easy, dirt roads that are pretty smooth. The 1/4 mile walk was very easy. There are several benches along the path if you need to take a break. The Petroglyphs were...More
