What You Will See:

The Ranch was originally part of the Hashknife Gang Spread and you can see the last remaining bunkhouse.

The ranch has a pioneer, cowboy and Anasazi museum. You can see hundreds of artifacts which were found on the property.

What most come to see is Rock Art Canyon, a beautiful wooded canyon with a stream running through it. On the walls are impressive Anasazi petroglyphs. The owner has built stairs down into the canyon and, on the rim, an observation station where you can rest or have a picnic meal.

Don't forget to make arrangements ahead of time!

Liz's Recommendation:

Rock Art Ranch is a hidden treasure. It is a must-see for those who are interested in ancient petroglyphs. I have never seen so many in one place. And, the canyon itself is beautiful. Check out the work of beavers while you are there.
