Highlight: Gunlock Petroglyphs
Long before the pioneers came out west, Native Americans had thriving communities hunted and farmed along the Santa Clara River. The archeological evidence that's been found shows their inhabitation was between 700 BC to 1200 AD. When the first Europeans arrived, the Piute Indians were living in the fertile valley around the river. These early native peoples created rock art panels along the river, all the way from Gunlock to St. George. This trail takes you to a designated site with several different types of Native American artwork. The area is rich in history and offers outdoor enthusiasts numerous activities for the entire family.

Last but not least, This trail leads to several primitive campsites that are very close to the Gunlock State Park and Reservoir.
