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. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

So many

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

Worth the Stop

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!
