Petroglyphs were great! Steep climb at the start but easy hike. Three sets of petroglyphs! Jackie

park in the Escalante River parking lot, look west. there's a private house with a split rail fence, walk towards the fence and stay OUTSIDE their property, on the right/north side of the fence. trail should become immediately apparent, which doesn't mean it's easy - it's a bit of a scramble getting up. DO NOT TOUCH THE ROCK ART - someone's already vandalized one lower petroglyph panel, they're very susceptible to damage. fortunately the Hands are too high up to get to. if you want to see the 100 Hands but don't feel like hiking the trail, you can see them using binoculars from Boyton Overlook across the way.
