  • Nice little introduction to the Petroglyphs and not an overly long and tiresome hike. Probably the best choice if it is a hot day.

  • Really, really, REALLY love this particular trail set at Petroglyph National Monument! We hiked up to the top & we walked the super-easy Macaw Trail. Go here & do this!

  • What a lovely hike! Beautiful views. Easy - moderate depending how high you want to go. Mostly paved. Some parts of the trail were sandy.
  • The hike is not long, it is technical and requires you to pay attention, and sometimes use your hands to steady yourself. This is a walk through history, let your imagination take you back in time when the art was being created.
