Pull off the state highway into the parking lot and check out these petroglyphs for a few minutes. Very cool. Some are a little hard to see but others are quite clear.

This doesn't take any time or effort and is a hit with ALL. There is a wooden boardwalk that is short and takes you directly to the Petroglyphs from the parking lot. Check at the Visitor's Center for the schedule because there is an awesome...More

Did not know what to expect, but what the heck only a very short walk right off the highway, why not stop and see it. It took a little while to spot them because they were fairly subtle. When you stop to think how many...More

This was really neat to see! It was hard to find at first, but worth it when you have spotted it! There are telescopes so it makes it easier to see the details!

Take the time to see these petroglyphs, as they are there but some take a little time to see, especially at certain times of the day.

It was great to see them and they don’t take long to view. It is a beautiful section of the park not very far from the visitors center.

Right along Hwy 24, but not in the park proper, you can pull over and see these petroglyphs. Walk along the boardwalk to the stairs and keep your eyes open. The Fremont River also runs along side.

Fremont Petroglyphs are anthropomorphic images carved by the Fremont people into the rock faces on Utah Route 24. The petroglyphs can be accessed by two short boardwalks. There is a decent-sized pullout for parking. My husband and I visited the petroglyphs around 5:30pm on a...More

The petroglyphs are about 1 mile east of the entrance to Coral Reef National Monument, there is a parking area on highway 12 where you can walk on wood walkways out to viewing points by the cliff. The actual petroglyphs are hard to see from...More
