Short steep walk to a fenced in petrified log. Not really too amazing.

Great trails to visit during the colder months of the year. Offers everything from rock crawling to dunes and caters to any type of off-road vehicle. Beautiful rock formations and wildlife.

not much hiking. You can almost drive up to the cabins. We hiked farther up and it was pretty. Some scrambling was necessary to go farther back.

Quick trip up the stairs to see some great petroglyphs. Good for adults and children.

We didn’t make the the entire trail length because of time constraints. We made it a little over 3.25 miles in before turning around (parked at the south entrance). It took us about 3 hours to for the 6.5 miles, and I’m a slower hiker.
Trail was pretty clearly marked except a small patch or two when you had to scramble up or down some boulders. I enjoyed it and would like to make it the whole way. It was phenomenally gorgeous!

Awesome off road trip. saw 12 head of big horns. Just before the old car. lizards everywhere. Drove the loop and then some.

Neat cabins built in 1935, with a nice covered picnic area to the side.

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.

I find the cabins amazing but I certainly would not call this a hike

Not really a hike but the cabins were neat to look at and go through.

Not really what you would call a hike. If you have never seen a petrified log before take it. If you have, save your energy for a little better trail and sights.

A great trail with a decent about of challenges to keep the hike fun. Beautiful scenery in all directions. My sister and I hiked from the trailhead towards the white dome loop. We never made it bc towards the end the obvious trail disappears and boot prints take off in multiple directions. At the same time, the few markers that exist stop all together. We tried to figure out where to go but weren't willing to risk getting lost while on the count down to sunset. Still a fabulous day hike!

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

But if you go BEYOND the trail and down into the river valley... it’s amazing! We walked for 7km, played on the sand, and found some really cool rocks.

on Prospect Trail

It was a beautiful hike, we did the full trail and added the White Dome Loop at the end since it’s right next to it. It took us approximately 3.5-4 hours, with short breaks to take pictures and enjoy some snacks.

We found the bed rock a little annoying to walk on, but such is the nature of the trail.

Also, it’s pretty well marked considering it’s an unmarked/unkept trail.

Skip it. I'm a rock nerd, and this was just boring. There was no visible agatization/shininess. The cross section looked woody, but the rest might as well have been a piece of sandstone. There is tons of cool stuff to do in this park - don't disappoint yourself by wasting even a little of your time on this worthless stop.

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.

Not much of a hike but still fun for kids. You get a great view of some mountains.

Beautiful hike with views of rock formations with many different colors. If you are making a loop with White Domes Trail, I would recommend parking at White Domes and go south and then connect with the Prospect Trail, this way most of the trail at the end will be downhill. There are some amazing side canyons on the trail that are stunning in color and striations. This is a great trail but it was a bit long and we did the 10 miles in 8 hours with many stops for photos and food breaks.

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

Really nice parking and picnic area. Easy to get to. Wish they had more info about the petroglyphs... how they were made, what they might mean etc.

Not much of a hike and not much of a log compared to the better petrified logs at the west site

Followed a faint trail to the top of a "pass" but when the trail appeared to decend and appeared to go back to the campground I returned back to the car. Didn't find Piano Rock.
Update. Piano Rock in near the campground at GPS 36.419278 -114.559444 according to several websites and shows up on the OSM trail layer
