Hero: Lone Warrior
small-sr Icon
The San Rafael Swell hosts an extraordinary collection of ancient petroglyphs and pictographs. One of the most unique is the Lone Warrior pictograph. A massive sandstone wall hosts a single red figure holding his spear and shield. To be totally honest, there are other faded pictographs along the sandstone edifice. However, it takes a keen eye to spot them. Lone Warrior is a spur off Swasey's Cabin. The brief drive to the Lone Warrior trailhead is sandy and prone to occasional washouts, but normally very easy. The hike to the Lone Warrior panel is only a few hundred feet on level ground. Several fantastic campsites are nestled in sandstone outcroppings on the north side of the road. They make a wonderful place for a great night under the stars contemplating the story behind the Lone Warrior.
