This is an amazing hike and is the best hike for everyone from children to seniors. This hike should be designated as a Gem within this application. From the visitor center drive your car through an amazing mystical one lane one way road (short section where road narrows through a slot canyon). The trailhead parking lot is less than a ten minute drive from the visitor center and is clearly marked Sep 9, 2017
The parking lot has an information sign that translates some of the fantastic examples of large scale petroglyphs in NV. The trail path is clearly defined through the entire hike. You will have ample opportunities to venture a few feet of the trail and check out these fine examples of ancient art. The trail ends at a small hidden 20 x10 foot pool of water inside a slot cavern.
