Wasn’t expecting much given how desolate the area is but was pleasantly surprised - Extremely deep canyon in the middle of nowhere filled with cobbles that poured in from a side canyon - Instead of going up to the dam I went up to where the side canyon cut in and then followed it out and went cross country - Be sure to look for the petroglyphs in three locations in the narrows on the left plus the fake petroglyphs across from the rock climbing area on the right

I loved this hike. We were in a F150 and we chose to walk from the parking are - the first wash is not in great condition - remember you have to get out. The petroglyphs, if you find them, are in great condition. The ones in the narrows are modern art! There is a lot of fossils and you can clearly see fault lines. There is a lot of loose rock in the narrow. When you get to the cave be sure to look on the ground - the sand takes good foot prints,

It was okay. Very long walk though, I suggest you bring LOTS of WATER & stay hydrated!!! It was also kinda hard to see some of the petroglyphs but it was interesting.. I had a good time with my dog and my grandma :)

First, you will need a 4x4 vehicle or at a vehicle with good clearance to make it to the trailhead, or you are going to have to hike an extra 5 miles there and back. The rock paintings every one talks about are hard to find and I did not manage to find the major wall of petroglyphs. I will go back sometime and try again. And they "recently" built a Dam Wall at the far side of the canyon, I guess to control the flooding, so you can not exit the canyon and continue the trail, there may me a "new" trail around this obstacle, but did not look for it, maybe next time.

Easy, flat hike. Fun to see all the petroglyphs on the canyon walls. Definitely worth it!
