The Grimes Point Archaeological Site Hike is like stepping back in time. This historic site has amazing views of the surrounding area and 6000 year old Native American artwork.

From Fallon, Nevada on US-Hwy 50, head east for 7 miles until you see the sign for Grimes Point on your left. The area offers mutiple miles of hiking and biking trials to small peaks overlooking the Fallon area. The main focus of the area is the historical interpretive 1/4 long petroglyphs trail. The boulders in the Grimes point area a marked with hundreds of different shapes and designs made by Native Americans over 6000 years ago. The trail is fun and educational for the entire family. Learn about how these Native Americans lived, traded, and hunted on the extinct Lake Lahontan. The area which was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1978 is still a very isolated area to take great photographs and enjoy scenic hikes. The area is has dry desert like conditions with very hot summers and cold winters. The area is free of charge.
