Fodor's Review

This is the largest concentration of ancient petroglyphs in the metropolitan Phoenix area. Some 1,500 of the cryptic symbols are here, left behind by Native American cultures that lived in the Valley (or passed through) during the last 1,000 years. After watching a video about the petroglyphs, pick up a pair of binoculars ($1) and an informative trail map and set out on the 0.25-mile path. Telescopes point to some of the most skillful petroglyphs; they range from human and animal forms to more abstract figures.
