HikingGreat!

Simple hike up the stairs from the parking lot. Nice petroglyphs. There are also petroglyps behind the pavilion that has tables in it.

Nice short trail to some really cool petroglyphs. Very nice views of Valley of Fire at the top as well. Lot of stairs but it’s not too hard.

I came here on a Sunday morning around 8:30AM and saw nobody else. The rock had stairs to it to see the petroglyphs and those were pretty cool! There were lots of them, and there weren't too many stairs. I'm glad that I got to go when there was nobody else there.

not really a hike but more of climbing stairs. good view of ancient petroglyph but a shame to see the vandalism.

Great little stop if you are into petroglyphs/Native American history. If you go around the entirety of the big rock there are petroglyphs in many, many more places than just the top of the stairs.

Like others have said, more of just a quick stop and walk up some steep stairs, but the history you get to see is so worth it!

Lots of people getting out of their cars to stretch their legs on this one. Some were wearing flip flops.

I wouldn’t really call this a hike, but, it’s a neat stop to stretch your legs and see the petroglyphs.

The top of the stairs has a beautiful view as well as close ups of the petroglyphs. We walked around the big boulder the stairs were attached to and noticed additional petroglyphs higher up on the rock.

This is essentially a stop along the scenic drive to view a number of petroglyphs at the top of the staircase.

Great view, if you go past the stairs and actually (safely) scale in between you come to a beautiful scenic view! 2nd time going, highly recommend.

Great petroglyphs, as long as you can climb stairs you are good to go here.

It’s very sad to see someone wrote graffiti over parts of the hieroglyphs! But there are still some nice looking hieroglyphs at the top of the large metal stair case that’s not far from parking lot.

short climb up a set of steel stairs to a panel of petroglyphs. awesome historical artifact. plastic panels placed in front of and below to keep vandals from carving their names into the rock.
