As you start your hike to Delicate Arch, be sure to check out the Wolfe Ranch Rock Art. Amazing how preserved the these markings are after so many years of exposure.

I'm a big fan of rock drawings done by the "Ancient Ones," as many native Americas refer to their predecessors of a thousand years ago. These drawings are more recent than those in Mesa Verde National Park but are worth the time to walk the...More

There really isn’t much to this. It’s a quick detour while on the delicate arch hike. We did this on the way back from the hike.

If you are going into Arches NP then this is an easy walk from the Delicate Arch parking lot, but the lot can get full fast. If you drive out Utah 279 (Potash) about 4 miles there is a huge panel of petroglyphs right next...More

Wasn't expecting this on our way up the mountain to see Delicate Arch but this rock art is so cool. Was just a short walk from the trail start. Amazing they have been around this long.

Don't miss this short turnoff to learn some interesting history on the Delicate Arch trail! It's worth the short detour.

The petroglyphs at Wolfe Ranch are a short hike off the main trail to and from Delicate Arch, and definitely worth a stop to see the incredible detail. Arches NP staff have protected them, somewhat, with a chain fence but you can still get good...More

All petroglyphs are fun to look at, and these are readily visible just a short walk off the main trail. They are not as good as newspaper rock, but are still pretty good and you don't have to go out of the park to see...More
