The wall seems to include examples of petroglyphs from at least two distinct periods of history, with very different styles and content. The sophistication of the solar calendar and the map system is astonishing, even with our very limited understanding of what all the images...More

The petroglyph wall is impressive, but what really made this a special visit were the staff/volunteers. A woman at the small visitor center gave us a nice introduction to the site, and the docent stationed at the wall was very informative. For folks with mobility...More

The trip to get to V-Bar-V Heritage Site wasn't the best trip of my life or anything. For one, we drove from Montezuma Well straight to V-Bar-V, and the road connecting the two is an unpaved dirt and rocks and gravel off-road adventure of its...More

Even in the intense heat, it was easy to hike to the terrific petroglyph site. There is a very nice little visitor center and restrooms, plus the petroglyph site itself is shaded. The volunteer interpreter was hilarious and informative. So glad we made it there...More

I read about this in a travel brochure picked up in Sedona - so glad we made the stop. Opening days and hours are limited, so be sure to check before going. The walk to the petroglyph site is about a mile round trip over...More

The path to the petroglyphs is maybe a 7 or 8 minute flat and easy walk. There are many petroglyphs on a rock about the size of a van. They are in good shape and very easy to see. However, they do have them blocked...More

The place has pretty short hours to begin with. It was full shade when I visited, it was early afternoon. I'm sure are better times but most of the petroglyphs are pretty clear. There are some older weathered petroglyphs too... More

I don't know off hand, but because it is part of the National Parks, hours should be online. One more thing, several pay and no pay National Parks options, so if you have the National Parks pass it will save you money.
