Escape the city on a self-guided quarter-mile nature trail featuring prehistoric petroglyphs, native desert plants, and animals in their natural habitat.

The preserve features historical research data completed by J. Simon Bruder, as well as displays of on-going Southwest archaeology research by ASU faculty and students.

The university has operated, protected and preserved the site since 1994. Opportunities to explore and learn more about the site and indigenous cultures are available through guided tours, publications and on-going lectures series. We look forward to your visit!
