Often hard to distinguish authentic old carvings from graffiti. We lucked out with the 15-17mi road in having been recently graded and sufficiently dry after the last precipitation to make easy driving. In other conditions, I suspect it would be a less pleasant drive.

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

This is great to see by itself or paired with the massive Boars Tusk. The Petroglyphs are fading a bit, but after a short hike up to the rocky mounds, you will still be able to see many of what is left. We all went...More
