One of the best ways to enjoy and experience Petrified Forest National Park is on foot.
- Stay on designated trails while in developed hiking areas. Off-trail hiking can damage the fragile grassland environment, disturb wildlife habitat, and/or create unsightly "social" trails.
- Pets are allowed on the developed trails. Pets must be kept on leash at all times. Please clean up after your animal.
- Bicycles are not allowed on trails, except for the half mile access trail that leads to the junction between the Long Logs and Agate House Trails.
Most trails are paved and barrier free, but several have grades in excess of ADA requirements. Portions of some trails are deemed accessible. See the descriptions below for more specific information.
