Petroglyph National Monument Boca Negra Trail Guide


Petroglyph National Monument protects one of the largest petroglyph sites in North America, featuring designs and symbols carved onto rocks by American Indians and Spanish settler 400 to 700 years ago. Surveys confirm the presence of more than 20,000 petroglyphs along the volcanic escarpment. Petroglyphs are a valuable record of cultural expression and hold profound spiritual significance for certain contemporary American Indian tribes, and they represent a part of our national story and heritage.

The Boca Negra Canyon Trail Guide offers insights into the area and people once present in the area, as well as specific details about sites along the several trails within Boca Negra Canyon, including Mesa Point Trail, Macaw Trail, and Cliff Base Trail, as well as the upper canyon area.
