  • Short 1/3 of a mile loop trail to see 3-4 sets of petroglyphs and Indian ruins. Trail is in great shape. Restrooms at this stop as well.  more »
  • This stop doesn't take a lot of time, but there's a little walking to see everything. It's an easy walk. We found the ruins very interesting. Easy to see the petroglyphs here too. There's not much...  more »
  • This is a MUST SEE! Gorgeous petroglyphs and preserved pueblos. But for the love of all things, be RESPECTFUL and don't leave the designated path. They provide telescopes to see the glyphs better, don't be THAT person that leaves the path and risks harming themselves or the beauty of the pueblos just for Instagram.
  • Beautiful ruins and a nice short walk in the desert. Hot as hell though. It was high 70s at the end of March. Not sure if I would go back any closer to summer.
