Out of the way, non-advertised site to which we were referred by a park ranger at another site. Property was privately owned and fenced off for many years, so they made sure the art was undisturbed and well-preserved. Very interesting and worth the side trip. The ranger was extremely knowledgeable.

The Ranger was great! He was very knowledgeable & able to get children involved with his stories and questions after. Thousands of petroglyph's above ground as well as below according to our guide. With the movement of the sun you can see a whole new set of petroglyph's. Very interesting to see these figures and shapes and learn what they... More

... and mind taking a bit of time from your travels along I-17, then treat yourself. This is a surprisingly interesting and intriguing stop. The resident docent, volunteer rangers are wonderful and help explain some of the mysteries behind one of the best preserved petroglyph sites in the southwest. This is particularly a good venue for photographers. You'll need to... More

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
