Petroglyph National Monument: Piedras Marcadas Canyon Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Piedras Marcadas Canyon is located in the northernmost section of the national monument, and its name means “canyon of marked rocks.”

Even though the trailhead is located in a very urban area, the canyon is actually home to the largest number of petroglyphs in the park. The 2-mile out-and-back trail quickly leaves the urban surroundings and o?ers hikers a short getaway from the hustle and bustle of the nearby city."
