My husband and I (both active senior citizens) hiked up to see this petroglyph site on a sunny day in January 2017. The hike to the hillside was easy. And, the hike up the rocky hillside to see the petroglyphs wasn't too bad either. However, it was a bit more difficult coming down the hillside. I wished that I had... 更多
For all the years we've been going to Santa Fe, we did not know this existed, and this close to town!! As my husband seemed bored by the same ole things we always did in Santa Fe, I got on Trip Advisor to see what local points of interest were in and around Santa Fe. We decided this would be... 更多
Just an easy little hike and jaunt up some large rocks leads to quite a few beautiful centuries old symbolic petroglyphs. Totally worth the easy trip from the city and round trip doable in 2-3 hours, so an amazing easy historical venture if you have some down time.
This is truly a great place to visit in Sante Fe. There is ample parking and the trail to the bottom rim is really not much more than a walk. The better petroglyphs are higher but if you take your time very doable. We wondered around to find what we thought were all but have seen photos here of things... 更多
Right outside of Santa Fe, on the sides of a hill are these wonderful rock art images. I used to work with the Rock Art Project so I have enjoyed walking and cataloging the pictographs. However I find it a shame that some people use this as a shooting range. This is a cultural heritage site and I for one... 更多
. . . This is a great place! A short hike (though steep and over rocks) takes you to a plethora of petroglyphs. We could have walked much further, but because of the very cold winds, we cut it short. But even in our time there, we saw many petroglyphs. This is the kind of activity we love, and if... 更多
This is a rigorous climb over rocks to get to the good petroglyphs. There are some along the bottom rim for those that can't make it up the rocks. Worth the effort. If you go in the summer, go early when it's cooler and watch for rattle snakes.
The arrows point you in the wrong direction along a fence. The gate is to the right. Tricky fence and tricky to find the way. The petroglyphs are up there if you're willing to put in the time and energy to find them. I hope this spot doesn't get vandelized.
Stopped here in the way from Santa Fe to Albuquerque and it wasn't terribly far off the highway. When you walk straight out of the parking lot and reach the trailhead, there is very little (aka no) information about where the petroglyphs are located, how far you have to walk, etc. Just follow the little white arrows along a path... 更多
For the most part, the hike to the petroglyph site is on a flat, desert surface through sage brush, cacti and junipers. There is parking at the trail head and the trail is clearly marked. In order to access the actual site of the petroglyphs, the hiking ends and the climbing begins up a incline strewn with rocks to a... 更多
