It took us less than 5 hours for the round trip (3 in and 2 out). It can get hot in the summer. So it is advised to bring in ample water. We have enjoyed seeing the panels and the interpretation of the volunteer rangers.

This is a great experience. This is far off of pavement and a decent hike but very doable. Walked where ancient civilizations walked and we created our own stories of how they must have lived. A good family experience. We did this in a Honda...More

When you take the trouble to see this panel, you will never forget it. Very few people do, so you are usually by yourself at the panel. It is so stunning to see in person, not just in pictures. Very well worth the day to...More

Went with family. Great hike. Beautiful canyon with lots of petroglyphs to see. Better if you go with the ranger-led hike so you can get closer to the Great Gallery It is moderately strenous.
