Enjoyed the Petroglyphs and the short trail walk. Only 10 or 15 off the hwy and a nice break while traveling through Utah. There is amble parking and it appeared to be accessible for all ages and abilities. Definitely worth the short detour.

Really seems off the beaten track, one couple there when I arrived and after they left I was alone. Beautiful red rock hills and then long flat vistas. Petroglyphs are well preserved and easy to see. Nice break and easy walk to view them. Bathroom...More
