Very cool petroglyphs! Be sure to go down to the trail straight out from the sign and go down one layer to see all the petroglyphs on those rocks!

Simple trail that most ages can traverse. Go before 11am to beat the heat. The surrounding views are great and the petroglyphs make for interesting conversation.

Great, easy hike/walk. Beautiful views. Cool petroglyphs. Can get a little bit off trail. Helpful to use the map.

The views of the red cliffs are beautiful and the petroglyphs are a really unique sight to see

Beautiful panoramic views of Red Mountain. Easy hike for most. Interesting petroglyph. Very beautiful just before sunset. (I prefer the hike from the southern trailhead for hiking on this bluff for hiking and mountain biking.)

10/10 would recommend just make sure you go early for cooler temperatures and bring LOTS of water. There is no shade or water sources on the trail. In total it’s actually 4.4 miles. Dog friendly! So bring your furry friend. There’s several marked stopping points for beautiful scenic views!

Walking

This is a wonderful hike. We went pretty early right at sunrise and we didnt see anyone on the way in but on our way out at around 9 there were a lot of people walking in. I would say the hike to the petroglyphs was easy. If you are on the fence about going, I would highly recommend this hike! We will definately hike it again!

Contrary to the other reviews, one can find a lot better hikes than this. Yes the views are nice but part of the trail is loose gravel and the incline with it makes it an annoying hike especially since there are other hikes that are close and way better.

Great trail, will do it again and try different paths. However, I did see two rattlesnakes - one crossing the trail and one coiled up about 2’ from the trail. Be vigilant. I’d give 5 stars except for the snakes.

This was a really fun trail. We ended up going just under 6 miles due to some exploring and just enjoying the nature. It was really windy at the top which was really fun.

There is a secret spot for the young at heart located just South of this hike. When you have reached the part of this trail that levels out a bit and the vegetation on the left has grown dense, make a left on a small pathway, just right of the fallen refrigerator. You'll know what I mean. There is a swinging rope and a jumping dock. But be careful, because there is little to no water to jump into. But if clubhouses are more your thing, there are some creepy small forts just West of there. It's a lovely place for the imagination. Oh, and the petroglyphs are cool too. There are all over the wall where you can find people's lost objects such as a large automobile.

Went on a Saturday and didn’t see a single soul (except @ the parking lot at the trail heads). I enjoyed this trail. Fantastic scenic panoramas of red mountain, pine valley, the Santa Clara river and you can even see the Gunlock mountains at some points. No shade. Wear a hat and bring lots of water. Trail was easy to follow. Trail goes up and down hills.

Easy trail. There were a lot of people on a Saturday morning. Seeing the Indian art at the top was very nice. Most people seemed to have dogs. The big issue walking the trail was trying to avoid all of the dog poop on the trail.

Four stars for the payoff, but the trail itself isn't very exciting. Easy walk on a clear trail, but there is a mild slope the whole way up. On the way back down you have nice views of the Red Mountain and Pine Valley. Climbing around looking for the pictographs at the top was a lot of fun. On a Sunday morning there were quite a few people and dogs.

Nice, short trail. Easy with minimal elevation gain. You could hike it with tennis shoes, I guess. Not well marked on Hwy 91. Coming out of Ivins, it's on the left. Two stacked stone columns with a bar across the top, like there was once a sign. Now there's a mailbox (#3333) next to the post on the left, makes it look like someone's private road, but it's not. Turn down the road and then, there's a sign and you know you're in the right place. Petroglyphs not well marked as to where they are. On the right of the trail, by the edge. You need to take one of the unmarked paths down into the rocks. Nice hike.

Nice trail with some different views then the other hikes starting here. Cold January weekday morning and I had the trail, except for one biker, to myself. From the tracks, this is usually a biking trail . Very few footprints lots of tire tracks. Trail starts as a desert road but after one mile turns into single track.

On the way up is just a dirt trail when we got to the writing rocks it was exciting. A lot of dog pops please clean up after your lil one. But overall great hiking spot. Took my 7 year old and 5 year old and they enjoyed every 3 miles of it

Great little hike in a beautiful area. I doubt the authenticity of lots of the glyphs - who came up with the idea of aliens having antennae? - but it has great views, and I can imagine the Anasazi kids scratching pictures on the rocks after bringing food from the valley up to the granary. When you get to the sign at the top of the switchbacks, you need to drop down into the rocks to see the pictures. If you continue up the trail, you will be treated to some great views, but won't see any rock pictures up there. Don't bother taking the switchbacks - the trail along the fence isn't steep enough to make it worth the extra distance, unless you're biking or jogging.
