  • This is a must see. It is an ancient historical site. The petroglyphs might be seven thousand years old. The hike to the viewpoint is 2 miles round trip.

  • If, like me, you have been searching for petroglyphs, but you don't want to walk for miles to find them. AND if you are living in, or passing through, Fallon, NV - then Grimes Point is for you. It was recommended to me by a nice local. Fallon has good vibes. Carson City, not so much. I'm being nice. Sorry, but I just can't believe that anyone would choose CC to live in. Yuck.
  • Nice area to check out. Well maintained and plenty of informative signs! Trails are nice and not overly challenging. Absolutely a place to visit!
