We've been to V Bar V several times, and each visit reveals something new. The Forest Rangers and volunteers interpreters are terrific. Plan to visit at different times of the year (the solstices would be the best) and at different times of the day as the sun reveals new things about the petroglyphs.

I've wanted to see petroglyphs for years, and decided that it was time. Although on a small scale, it is still spell-bounding to look upon something left by ancient civilizations. The hike was pleasant (lots of bugs hopping around), and the guide was very informative. Overall, it fulfilled something on my bucket list. I'll visit again and go to another... More

Came here by way of the dirt road leaving Montezuma's Well. Only about 15 minutes away. This was a medium flat walk from the parking lot to visitors center and then to the pictograph panels. Maybe 1/4 mile each way. It is a very neat rock art panel if you like this kind of thing. Volunteer at the site was... More

The heritage site is a bit remote and out of the way, but well worth the trip. The main feature is a cliff face of petroglyphs. The roughly one hour talk given by an outstanding and knowledgeable guide (a volunteer and former master teacher no less) was one of the high points of our week-long vacation.

A well preserved site with petroglyphs. There is a ranger on site that gives a very detailed presentation of the area. We were lucky enough to be there in the late afternoon as the sun was beginning to set, when the ranger presented the "Solstice" talk at the wall. It's amazing to see that the native americans were able to... More

Have been fortunate enough to see petroglyphs in Utah, New Mexico and AZ. These panels have the most images and been well preserved. We had an excellent volunteer on site to explain the history, the solstices on the panels, and what archeologists are comfortable in commenting on what the symbols are drawings represent. So glad we went! A big thank... More

This is close to the Sedona area, but MANY people have never heard of it. I want to shout about it because it is a great place for learning about the Native Americans from 1,000 or more years ago. The petroglyphs amazing and easy to see. Check dates for being open, maybe just Friday to Monday. Off Route 17 near... More

I am fascinated with petroglyphs and this was a fantastic site loaded with them. So much value was added due to our interaction with the friendly and informative Duffy's. They offered lots of detailed information and thoughtfully answered our questions. It inspired me to do further research on several subjects. The short, easy trail to the site makes it accessible...

It's a lovely, easy walk to a whole large wall of petroglyphs. Not just painted on,but carved into the rock. Well worth an hour or longer viewing

I guess I'm jaded after seeing so many spectacular Mayan sites: although historically important, V Bar V would be low down on my list of things to do in the Sedona area. We visited on a hot sunny day. The hike to the petroglyphs while not overly long is not exactly close either, plus it's mostly without shade so wear... More
