My husband, myself, and our 21-month-old visited the intaglios, excited for the opportunity to see the "Nazca Lines of the US". We knew going in to the experience that they were no where near as glamorous, and I can report that is indeed the case....More

It's easier to find than many of the reviews would have you believe, the gravel road is also in better condition. But, it's still a gravel road. There are two "stops", the first about 2 minutes in. Get out of your car and look north...More

We really enjoyed viewing these intaglios. It raised a lot of questions for me that I need to investigate further. If you're at all interested in archaeology cultural anthropology just history of the Native Americans this is a pretty neat place to visit

There are many intaglios in the area. Locals and BLM will help you. These are sacred to Native Americans, especially the Yumans. Please treat them with respect as you would anything spiritual. They are very old and a tribute to man's spiritual quest.

Go on U S Highway 95 and look for the Carin and the sign. It is a Bureau of Land Management historic site and the only place in the USA that has these Intaglios. One estimate is that they are up to 2000 years old....More

The Blythe Intaglios are very easy to drive to and a very short walk. If you are at all interested in the local Indian history this is a must see. There are several signs telling about what you are seeing in the two fenced areas...More

Yes, but don't go further than the second parking parking area. We continued up the trail looking for the third site, and it was rough and rutted. We were in a jeep with high clearance.
