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
It's a steep hike up but, once there, you'll see way more petroglyphs that you will at the National Petroglyph Monument in Albuquerque! I've returned here at least four times with visitors who wanted to see petroglyphs.
can see many incredible petroglyphs. But you have to walk carefully and slowly at the top, but good because that is where the carvings are! Rec. a walking stick if you are tall and/or older. Might be snakes there in the summer.
We mocked reviewers as we walked from the parking lot to the trailhead. There was a reader board at the parking lot, giving information about the petroglyphs. The path to the rocks was marked with white arrows. We climbed up the trail toward the rocks, viewing some petroglyphs. Whether they were the real thing was a little dubious. This is... 更多
This site is close from Santa Fe and easy to get to. To reach the site go 3.3 miles west from the intersection of NM 599 and Airport Road until you see a BLM parking lot and sign. Follow the arrow-marked trail for about 10 minutes up to the basalt cliffs where the petroglyphs are located.
Awesome. Go early before it gets too hot. Amazing number of petroglyphs. Minimal information/history onsite but we had researched before we went. Requires good hiking shoes or tennis shoes. Our 3 yr old loved exploring the rocks. Saw lizards. FREE! No bathroom facilities but shockingly close to town. Must see!!
We had the great fortune of having an expert guide, Dan, through Sunrise Springs Spa Resort. Not only was he a magazine editor for the area, but a true scholar of the history and peoples that shaped New Mexico.
