Hero: Three Fingers
small-sr Icon
Three Fingers is a popular petroglyph site on the edge of the San Rafael Swell. The site is named for a specific piece of art with three fingers. The artwork is quite impressive, with numerous characters unique to this site. This easy out and back trail travels to a small parking area for hiking to the rock art site. The trail is easy enough for all stock 4x4s with high clearance and durable tires. This dirt road is not for passenger cars. A couple of deep washouts and ruts could cause low clearance 2WD vehicles to become high-centered. The walk to the rock art is about 100 yards beyond the parking area. Stay to the right as you walk into the canyon and start looking at the solid rock ground and walls. Be careful as you walk to help preserve the site; the petroglyphs are in the rock under your feet. There were not any campsites found along this trail. Please do not camp in the parking area.
