This place is off the beaten trail. The road is gravel, but we managed fine in our small car. Beautiful views and history. Bring good walking shoes as the paths can get narrow in places with rocks. Also, you must phone ahead for a time....More

Unusual site with Indian petroglyphs, but you must make sure to go when the Park Ranger is there to explain how the Indians marked time. Absolutely fascinating, and he was so enthusiastic. A high point of our trip to the area.

Yes, you can reach Palatki from Dry Creek Road/Fay Canyon. A little less dirt road but still about 5 miles of dirt road. Signage on that way is better. It is also more scenic that wat.

There was no charge, but if you leave a donation it stays with Palatki and is used gratefully. Many of the docents are volunteers.
