Owner description: Mysterious hieroglyphics, supposedly carved by Indians, adorn this large boulder.

This is an amazing find and it is a shame that if something isn't done the petroglyph will no longer have visible etchings. They have recently built a nice walkway and viewing area and added signage. It is easily accessible and worth the short drive off the highway.

There will be signage on the observation deck. We are sorry but there has been some delays but we should have this done before the end of the year. A very special site and the largest rock art site in the southeast.

This unusual rock is in the Caney Fork area between Sylva, NC and Cashiers, NC and only a few miles from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee. A small two-lane country road leads to the rock's site. There is no parking lot but the walkway is new and excellent. Only a couple of signs give a history but the petroglyphs apparently remain a mystery.

For people interested in Cherokee history and culture this would be an interesting trip through some nice mountain meadows.

Viewing the rock from the walkway is encouraged but walking up to the rock and touching it is discouraged.

Would like to know what all those hyroglyphics mean. Lots of food for thought. This is out in the middle of nowhere and was being upgraded when we were there. It must be even better now.

Easy access with descriptive signage and a great observation platform. It's too bad the rock has eroded as much as it has.
