This short, easy hike leads to some 5000 year old petroglyphs, that are easy to access, see and admire. A bit further into the canyon adds some dramatic scenery to the trip. Well worth the short drive from Laughlin.

If you get to love the really early of human evolution and what they communicate by pictures, you will love this area. Awesome area and areas to consider when you are traveling.

Grapevine Canyon is a favorite of tourists and locals alike. The dirt road just north of Needles Highway on 163 is worth the drive. The road was in fairly good condition the day we went up. Road can be bumpy due to use but short...More
