If you’re traveling on I-70 west of the Utah/Colorado line, this is a convenient and rewarding side trip through the historic and prehistoric human presence in Utah. There are excellent prehistoric rock-art panels from Archaic and Fremont peoples, as well as historic Ute Indian figures. The remains of the old coal town of Sego cap the tour. Spring and fall are the best times to enjoy it.

This is a great place to see some awesome rock art. Most of it is nicely preserved. Some of it has been vandalized by ignorant A-Holes. Easy to get to
