We love seeing petroglyphs anywhere we go in the west. These were worth the trip. We had the place to ourselves and took the time to check out both sides of the road. A little bit of a steep hike

We're not really into petroglyphs, but were in the area and decided we might as well stop in and see what there was to offer. It's located on Gap Road closest to highway 130. It's a very quick stop, depending on how interested you are...More

If you want to see petroglyphs and don't want to hike through the back country, then this is you place. Not too far from Kolob Canyon and well worth the drive. The petroglyphys are right beside the road. There is parking and a bathroom (no...More
