This location has hundreds of rock art drawings within a small confided area and easy to explore without a lot of rock climbing. The property is run by the BLM with a fee of $2.00 to park. You can also camp here for $8.00 a night which would be nice in the winter.
Painted Rocks is located along a number of important historical routes, including that of Juan Bautista de Anza's expedition of 1775-1776; the route of the Mormon Battalion; and the Butterfield Overland Mail stagecoach route. As a result, the site contains inscriptions made by travelers in these and other groups along with the petroglyphs.
