If you’re driving on the cub creek road, you’re missing out if you don’t take a few minutes to check these out. Amazing petroglyphs, especially a very large one of a lizard that is actually visible from the road. Would recommend for almost anyone.

Loved this short little jaunt up to see some petroglyphs. Was bugged to see some vandalism (highly doubt those smiley faces :) were original to the indian figures). Definitely worth your time to see.

I wouldn't really call this a hike just a walk up. Great petroglyph

Spectacular. Lots and lots of petroglyphs. And a view out into the valley that is also fantastic. And to top off our visit, a family of 6 or 7 turkeys. Do not miss this 10-30 minute excursion.

Interesting petroglyphs close to the road, also gives nice elevated views of the area. Located on the way to Josie Bassett Morris homestead area, Box Canyon, and Hog Canyon Trails.
