This short hike takes you to several interesting petroglyph panels and provides nice views of a very pretty section of the Virgin River Gorge. The two largest panels have interesting geometric shapes interspersed with people and animals; one is a large boulder that stands on its own and the second sits on a ledge like a large writing slate. This route would make a good place to stretch your legs on a journey along Highway 15, and the two route options will allow folks to stop whether they are heading north or south. I recommend the southbound route when possible because it is more direct and avoids a river crossing. A big thanks to Ironrider for pointing this hike out!

Note: There is a social trail along much of this route, but in places it fades away. Stay on trails whenever possible to avoid disturbing the sensitive plants and soil crust and, when the trail disappears, try to stay on gravely areas or slickrock.
