The Petrogylph Point Trail is a 2.7 mile loop in Mesa Verde National Park. The trail is one of the most popular in Mesa Verde, featuring beautiful wild flowers, scenic views of the canyons, and ancient petroglyphs carved into the rocks.

Pick up a trail brochure for information on the interpretive signs. There are some steep and narrow portions of the trail, so make sure everyone in your party is of able physical capability.
