About 4 miles in on the El Passo Natural Gas road there is a large BLM "Eagletail Mountains" sign on a dirt road to the left. The kiosk and gate to the hike is about a mile past the sign, iconic Arizona vistas of Courthouse Rock and the mountains beyond. Loads of Petroglyphs on a small dark mesa about 3.5 miles in, to the left of the wash.
Beyond this mesa, the trail continues along the wash over a divide, through a canyon and out into the open desert. There are more Petroglyphs and good rock hounding in this canyon.
