La Cieneguilla Petroglyph Site Reviews & Ratings
Very interesting and not many people around. The area doesn’t have much information regarding the petroglyphs. Follow the path and hike up to the high point, requires about a 0.5 mile hike.
Nice and quiet. If you're an RVer this is a nice spot to spend the night. We weren't bothered and it's considered public land.
It is a little rough to get there but pretty cool
This site requires some climbing up a couple of hills on uneven rocky terrain. It was about 95 degrees when we went, so you might enjoy it more on a cooler day. The directional signs to get to the petroglyphs is clear and easy to follow. The trail is a half mile one way. The petroglyphs are pretty cool. We would loved to have seen more informational signage about the petroglyphs. This was a pretty quick and fun little outing.
The Petroglyphs were very interesting and beautiful. The hike was fun and not too challenging. The only negative was that the paths are not marked well, so you can see many paths travelling in all directions through the glyphs and park.
