Dry Forks Petroglyphs

Vernal, Utah 84078 USA

“a tour you will always remember”

This is one tour you will always remember! These Native American petroglyphs are world renown, found all along 200-foot-high “Navajo Formation” sandstone cliffs. The tour can take from 1 to 8 hours, depending haw far you want to go and how much you want to see. Trails take you up close and personal to view figures up to 9 feet tall. These figures represent the Fremont culture, which flourished in this area from about 1-1200 AD. The petroglyphs are on private land. Visitors are asked to obey all signs and respect the sites. The parking lot for the petroglyphs is located a mile off the main canyon road and is accessible year round. From the center of downtown Vernal (Hwy 191 and Main street), head west to 500 West, turn north (right) and head out on the Maeser Hwy (121) to 3500 West. Turn North (right) and head about 10 miles up the road until you reach a major fork in the road (a sign reads "Red Cloud Loop") and turn right. Cross the bridge and continue on the pavement for another two miles until you reach the shade of the  cottonwoods, box elders, steep canyon walls, and a large stream which is Dry Fork Creek.
