Quite a few petroglyphs, very easy to see. Best of all there are several posters telling about the area, the cultures, and suggesting possible meanings of some of the petroglyphs.

Friends so enjoyed this large display of fascinating petroglyphs they took me to see them. Easy to see from the walkway, and a fascinating variety of images. The descriptive panels do a good job of attempting a translation, and the brochure in the visitor center...More

Pull up in car, let kids explore, done. It’s less than a minute walk from the parking lot to see A LOT of Petroglyphs. Flat trail. An electric scooter could handle it.

Amazing array of rock art. Dont miss dino footprints five minutes down the road if you have never seen these. The array of art is immense and magical.

There is nothing like the rock art we have seen at the Gap and these are the most unique ones we have ever come across. The Gap’s petroglyph gallery includes varied subjects including lizards, snakes, human figures, bear claws, mountain sheep and even geometric designs....More

Most interesting, you can get up close. The wind through the gap in fun. When you drive through the gap you can't see it. Thinking of the people standing there and making these so many years ago. Giver you the chills.

We were in the Parowan area and decided to take a short side trip to see the Petroglyphs & Dinosaur footprints. This is about 10 miles west if Parowan. It was worth the drive! They recently installed a parking lot, information signage and restrooms. The...More

This place is really a gem - it's not far outside of Cedar City, it's easy to find, there is easy access and plenty to look at. The signs near most of the petroglyphs explain some of what you see and it's interesting and informative....More

This s a very easy sight to safely walk about to see numerous drawings on high walled rock formations.. The drive to get there through farm fields in a remote area adds to the adventure. The description on easily read posters is also helpfdul./

The trail to search for the dinosaur prints is easy to find but the prints were a little different. We found three footprints although my grandson (6) doesn't believe that they are from real dinosaurs.

REAL close. It’s fenced off. Some glyphs go way up the rocks. Walk all around. You’ll find info boards. FYI, stop to see the dinosaur fossil tracks. It’s in the same area-it’ll be the first stop on the right coming... More
