Description

Added by John Maurizi

View a large panel of petroglyphs with easy access from Moab.

Just north of Moab driving out on route 191, look for Potash Road, also known as route 279 just after the Colorado River. Turn left on Potash road and and drive five miles south.  You will see a paved pull-out on the Colorado River side of the road with a sign for the petroglyphs.

The rock art is about 25 feet up on the sandstone wall and it spans about 125 feet.  Be careful crossing the road here.  The wall is popular with rock climbers and some drivers look at the climbers instead of watching the road.

Reviews

We had to drive by a couple times, before we found them. If it wasn’t for some climbers nearby we wouldn’t have found them. If you’re lucky, you’ll see people around and then you’ll know you’re close. Well worth the search for them!

This is a nice place to stop to look at after climbing. If you cannot find it, they are super high and shortly after the climbing on Wall Street ends for the most part.

So many to look at and they are in really good condition. Kids liked it too

These petroglyphs are easy to pass by as they are so high off the road. The parking is easy, and then look up to see the rock art. There is a ton of it!
