  • Best to go here in the Summer, a bit out of the town of Riverton and the last few miles are on a dirt road. New walkways and very interesting. We have met people from all around the world at this...  more »
  • The drive wasn't too bad. Eleven miles of dirt so don't go after a good rainstorm. Once you arrive, the scenery is breathtaking and you can hear a pin drop. However, there are no restrooms onsite...  more »

  • This is an amazing and beautiful part of Wyoming. It is a little off the proverbial beaten path, which is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5, but I would highly recommend. There are some rocks that you can climb, of course see the petroglyphs, (SHAME ON YOU WHO CHISELED OUT WYOMING'S HISTORY!), and walk in the sunshine with the animals. There is a good chance of seeing Wyoming floral and fauna here.
  • Horrible drive to get here and definitely not for vehicles with 4WD or drivers without experience, but oh it is SO worth the effort! Stunning little canyon with glorious colours and rock formations at every turn. Walking is easy once you get here. Petroglyphs are interesting and to be treasured but it's the location that will stay with you - you will NOT regret making the effort!
