Offline map is recommended. Users have reported that the trails are not marked well. Waterfalls and 1000 year old Petroglyphs. You start the hike with a workout. A 1/4 mile walk in a sandy, dry river bed. The real pleasure and sense of history starts at the mouth of the canyon. 1000 year old Native American Indian Petroglyphs start at eye level and continue up several hundred feet up the canyon wall. Stay to the left as you continue up the canyon, the trails are visible but not marked. You will be rewarded with tremendous views of the Colorado River Valley and 3 seasonal waterfalls which are gorgeous when running. You will find why the canyon was named what it was. A gigantic patch of wild grapevines running over a 100 feet long and stretching from canyon wall to canyon wall. Past the 3rd waterfall you will find deep, natural bath tubs worn into the rocks. Great place to soak those weary bones after the climbing you'll do to get there. Just remember, stay left as you go up the canyon. You'll be rewarded with some very interesting geological surprises along the way. NOTE: reports of cholla cactus stickers on the trail, so be cautious bringing dogs on this trail.

This is the go to hike in Laughlin. Been exploring this route for decades. There are some underground boulder runs for novice spelunkers, North of the balance rock. Cottonwood trees, grapevines, and a new arrival, bamboo all enjoy the waters. There are lots of lizards, manly zebra tail, and chuckwallas. The granite rocks are very picturesque.

Great trail. Water seemed to cool it a bit. Lot of polliwogs in the stream. The petroglyphs mark the entrance to the canyon. The springs appear to come up in two locations. If you want to go past the waterfall you will have to do some rock climbing. Go up on onesies comeback on the other. There are spots to rest in some shade. The trail also goes through a thick patch of grapevines that go over your head.

Short trail, but lots to see. Plenty of lizards and snakes. Seems to have a lot of traffic.

Great Trail! Highly recommend good hiking shoes or boots as when the water is running through the rocks are slippery. Also a lot more rock climbing than expected but made for a great adventure! If you’re not about seeing snakes I’d steer clear, overall wonderful hike!

Beautiful petroglyphs and many lizards running around! Would recommend wearing shoes with grip (hiking shoes/boots) going up and down the steep, slippery rocks.

I loved this hike. The dirt road to get to the trailhead is easily passable in a sedan, and I saw a big fat rattlesnake on it! Amazing. Views from the road are impressive even before getting on the trail. The path begins on a wide wash, it isn't long until reaching the canyon where all of the petroglyphs are. Most of the petroglyphs seemed like real amateur hour art, but SOMEONE was a real talent. The antelope petroglyphs are a bit hard to find they aren't in the main cluster, a little bit around the corner. On the left side of the rocky canyon wall higher than the main cluster, search there and you will find them. Past this the route swirls around/over boulders, up to a really cool balanced rock and out into the canyon. Follow my instagram for more hiking and adventures: @julie_journeys

I did this hike in mid February. This hike is a lot better hike than I expected. You basically hike up into a canyon. The views are really good. The hike is rated hard, but I thought it was more moderate as far as difficulty. There are spots that you do have to climb around and over big boulders, probably why rated hard. But is is very manageable. As you go on the trail, it isn’t marked with signs like most trails. But it is easy to see the direction you’re going as it is basically going along in the canyon. There are several spots where you have to look for the trail, or spots where there are a couple different trails to get around an obstacle. But you can’t really get lost as the only way is either forward in the canyon or backward to your car. I’d definitely take the time to do this hike. The petroglyphs are on the rocks at the entrance into the canyon.

Beautiful calm experience. I am definitely going back again. I would recommend to go at the time of sunset and enjoy the beautiful red peaks on Bullhead Side from the top.

forgot to record but my battle buddy and I hiked the whole thing, I wouldn't say the trail was hard, sometimes a definate trail was hard to FIND, so whatever was the path of least resistence was the way we took. There's so many beautiful things to see, so we were scrambling around all over the place. My Samsung health app said we walked 5+ miles, and I believe it. We came back the opposite side and were just checking out and enjoying everything, the whole time belting out random pink floyd lyrics. such a beautiful day in such a serene place... the petroglyphs are indescribable here, something you just have to see, and you can up close and personal. soooo dang cool
