Explore the Newspaper Rock Ancient Petroglyphs

Newspaper Rock - Search Nearby - Added by LJ Dawson

This easy access panel showcases some of the most amazing rock art this desert offers.

After leaving Moab, turn off Highway 191 on to 211. The drive will wind over the mesa tops and down into red rock canyon country. Enjoy the changing seasons whether the red cliffs are covered in snow or spring desert flowers are blooming.

Watch for cattle as this is open range country. Also watch for rain and snow because this road can turn gnarly fast in bad weather. It continues to Canyonlands National Park while passing by many other access roads and recreation areas.

Preserve and respect this ancient art.
