One of the sites at the Valley of Fire. This is the next site after The Cabins on the east side next to the Hwy.

Was disappointed in this after visiting Petrified Forest. There are better hikes in this park.

This is the next site after The Cabins. It's an easy short hike around 300 feet distance to the petrified log, where you will see a perimeter chain link fence. What's exposed above the ground is around 25 feet long what's left of this log. I was informed by another visitor who's been there many times that if you continue hiking further northerly on this trail you would see more. I didn't bother but if you do check Google Earth you might actually spot them.
