My wife and I are regular annual visitors to Sedona and only recently found the pictographs at V Bar V Heritage site. Its is off the beaten path yet one of the easiest places to find and maybe 5 minutes off the interstate. Check in at the small visitor center and walk maybe a half mile to a rock panel... 更多
A short walk through the old V-Bar-V ranch leads to a cliff covered with ancient petroglyphs. The Forest Service has an interpretive guide at the site, who explains likely meanings for the glyphs and demonstrates how part of the site was used as a solar calendar.
We've lived in the Phoenix area for almost 10 years but knew nothing about this. We decided to go see Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well over Memorial Day weekend and while we were at Montezuma Castle one of the volunteer rangers told us about the petroglyphs here and how to get there from the well. It is truly amazing that... 更多
We stumbled upon V Bar V Heritage Site when looking for things to do in Sedona. It's a bit out of the way, but once you get there, the petroglyphs are breathtaking. Tom the docent gave a very interesting talk about the various petroglyphs and answered all of our questions. If you're willing to go off the beaten path (literally),... 更多
This is the third visit I've made here. I'm very thankful we discovered the V-V Ranch. It's a not-to-be-missed Heritage Site. Jim Wilson was our guide and has been for all three of my visits. He very graciously played his flute for us after explaining the interpretations of the petroglyphs. He is knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. I felt lucky that... 更多
You reach the cliff face full of petroglyphs after an easy, flat 1/2 mile stroll. A forest service employee was describing some of the petroglyphs to the group already gathered when we arrived, so we joined the crowd. By the time he had finished, several newcomers had arrived, so he started over, and I stayed to hear what I had... 更多
We really enjoyed it. There's a short walk to the site from the parking area. Ranger on scene to tell all about what you can see. It's all pretty amazing and since so little is known, you can speculate as much as you want and no one will say you are wrong. Bring a camera and walking shoes.
Follow route 179 out past I-17 and continue for another four miles going east. You will come to several one lane bridges. Not much traffic, but a UPS did fly past us. The V Bar V Ranch was a private ranch owned by several ranchers in the past. They all had one idea in common: to keep the petroglyphs a... 更多

Enjoyed our visit to see the petroglyphs at the V-V Ranch. Easy walk to the site, approx. 1/2 mile. If you've never seen them before, you will be very impressed. There was a park volunteer at the site answering questions on the day that we visited. Parking was not a problem. It's a nice stroll for a nice weather day.
