The petroglyphs are just a short walk from the parking area. There are multiple petroglyph sites around the parking area. It was well worth the drive!

You will drive through a dying community between I70 and Sego Canyon. Don't worry, the locals are harmless. Once in the canyon, don't forget to sign the visitor book, I laughed all day over some of the stuff people wrote in there. The petroglyphs are...More

Stunning rock art. Multiple panels. Gravel parking lot with a vault toilet. Some signs describing the type of rock art. We were staying in Moab and it took maybe an hour to get here but it was worth it.

It's in the middle of nowhere, but the petroglyphs are a must see if you are in the area. You wonder what the artists wanted to represent, some characters really look like some aliens. It was like in that Prometheus movie... So here are real...More

This really is a hidden gem - you really would have no idea that these petroglyphs are here. Without much of a walk, you can see petroglyphs of at least 3 different historic eras: Ute, Fremont and Barrier. And there are informational signs to help...More

Have driven past this exit many times on I-70 between Grand Junction, CO and Green River, Utah without realizing how accessible these wonderful petroglyphs are. Unlike ones I've seen in New Mexico, these resemble space men - very otherworldly and the colors are very much...More

Once you leave the highway, there is a one lane road which has not been maintained. The petroglyphs are not well marked and hardly worth the trip. The road to the old ghost town is not marked and never did find it.
