Things To Do

Hiking Outdoors

All of the petroglyph viewing trails are outdoors so be prepared for the day's weather and dress accordingly. Always wear shoes that provide ankle support since the trails are along the natural surface which is oftentimes uneven ground. Please refer to the column of links to the left and click on Outdoor Activities to find detailed information about each of the trails.
