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.

Not much of a hike, but really cool to see some good petroglyphs. If you walk around the rock (to the right, if you are coming down the stairs) there is another whole set of petroglyphs at eye level that you can take a look at. Cool place to stop for a quick look.

Not really a hike but it’ll only take you about 5 minutes round trip to see this ancient graffiti.

Don't miss the petroglyphs beyond the stairs! from the bottom of the stairs, facing the rock, keep walking to your left. There are more (and better) petroglyphs within the first 100 yards.

Neat to see the Petroglyphs but I hate exposed heights and these steps are terrifying. You can feel the wind through them and honestly, you see cool Petroglyphs in Petroglyph Canyon. BUT, they were neat to see up close.

A 50 feet walk then stairs up the rock. They are petroglyphs so it’s always amazing to see such art. Please don’t write on the rocks!

Neat climb up a staircase to get a close look. But there is also more petroglyphs to look at all around the bottom of the mountain.

This is a climb up some stairs more than it is a hike. The petroglyphs at the top are really cool and you get great views of the desert. The surrounding area is also really cool and fun to explore. Definitely worth a stop.

This was so neat but sad to see the graffiti on the petroglyphs

This one was nice because the glyphs were very well preserved - the overhanging rock kept out the elements for the most part. There are also tons of glyphs all along the base of the rocks. We walked for about ten minutes, not seeing anyone else there, and kept seeing wall after wall of petroglyphs. It's an interesting little area, and is worth the quick stop even if you don't want to climb the stairs.

So little time and so much to see. I'll definitely go back to see all the different eye candy.
