Tularosa, New Mexico

Visit the Three Rivers Petroglyph Site

0.5 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Very interesting place where over 20,000 petroglyphs can be seen. Good views of the Sacramento Mountains

The site is North of Tularosa, NM and is easily accessible. There is good parking and the trail is not very difficult to walk. There are many petroglyphs to be admired. There are good views of the Tularosa basin and the Sacramento mountains. It is best not to go in the summer as it is very hot and there is no shade.
