Prepare for Your Visit

We appreciate adherence to the following guidelines when visiting:

  • No animals except service animals – Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS) § 11-1024.

  • The trail is not ADA accessible. Please note the trail is a relatively flat, graveled walking trail of approximately ¼ mile.

  • No smoking or open flame. The land at this cultural heritage site gets very dry and the risk for fire is high.

  • Please stay on the trail for safety, preservation and respect.

  • Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes, sunscreen and a hat, and bring water. You may also bring binoculars and your camera.

  • We are home to wildlife, including bobcats, javelinas, squirrels and rattlesnakes. Please do not approach, touch or feed the wildlife.

  • Please do not climb on or touch the petroglyphs. Oil from our fingers, scuffs from our shoes, and disturbance of the landscape harm the site.

  • This is a sacred site to many Native American tribes. Please do not damage or remove any artifacts, rocks or plants.
