Definitely a pretty hike, if you're into high desert hiking. It's a good uphill climb at first, but levels out and is easy going from there. The petroglyphs are well marked and easy to spot. Lots of bike traffic, so keep an eye out.

my favorite home in the valley, has everything- some elevation gain, great vistas, petroglyphs all in an easily manageable 4miles. Afterwards you can cool off in the river.

Avery nice hike. multiple great views of the fertile wine region along the Colorado River! not too difficult of a hike with some small inclines. well marked trail. worth doing because of the views from the Mesa. trail head is not well marked. it starts at mile marker 23. see pics.

The trail head is right off the road but the views of the valley and river are stunning! The trail is well marked and not too steep. This will be added to our regularly visited trails!
