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.

It would take about an hour to view the rock art. Obviously you can spend as much time as you would like walking through the Canyon. If you would like, Christmas Tree Pass is about 13 miles long. This road is not paved... More
