We went to see the largest site of petroglyphs in the Sedona area. So interesting and the site is preserved quite well and the petroglyphs are easy to see. There is a volunteer Park Ranger on site to review and inform visitors of what the believed interpretation is of the wall coverings. Very interesting and worth the short drive from... More

Fantastic site - the richest collection of ancient glyphs of all the local destinations. Easy walk to the glyph wall. Friendly docents do a good job of explaining how little we really know about these ancient symbols. Note that this site is near the intersection of highways 17 and 179, in the opposite direction from Sedona. The dirt road between... More

The Ranger at the visitors center recommended this place. We went here after visiting Montezuma's Castle as it's not far from there on your way back into Sedona. It was a beautiful spring day and the sky was so blue. We went here right before closing and checked in. We had a very nice walk by ourselves through the ranch... More

Great display of history. The rocks were shaped so the sun's shadows point to the summer and winter solstice, which were so critical in days gone by. The petroglyphs are in excellent condition, and the ranger does a great job explaining what the experts think they tell us. The path out from the parking lot is solid, with benches to... More

We were fortunate to be there on March 20 at the right time to witness the vernal equinox. What an experience to see the shadows from a pair of rocks bracket the sun symbol on the wall. The rock contains about a thousand rock art features. There is a dosient to explain it all. Although a bit of a hike,... More

V Bar V is a short drive from Sedona and a recommended stop on your trip. The site is the home to pyraglyphics that were inscribed around 6,000 BC. It is a short presentation by a knowledgeable volunteer guide interpreting the inscriptions. It was very educational and we are glad we made it a stop on our trip.

A bit of a walk from the parking lot to the small visitor check in. It has a small store and information area. From there it is an easy walk to a small section of preserved history. You can not touch the rock and sadly some is covered with fungal type growth with lack of sunshine. We had a fantastic... More
