These Wyoming Petroglyphs Are The Coolest Things You’ll Ever See For Free

Wyoming truly is like no other place on earth. North of Rock Springs, you’ll find a breathtaking petroglyph site, where native Americans carved their art and experiences into the rock hundreds of years ago. Plan an off-the-gride journey to the White Mountain Petroglyphs and you’ll be stunned by what you see.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Be aware! You’ll be traveling off the grid and likely will not have cell service. Bring a high clearance 4WD vehicle with extra water and food, and be sure you have a spare tire. Like any backcountry experience, be sure someone knows your plan and where you’ll be.

To find the White Mountain Petroglyphs, head north from Rock Springs up 191. About 10 miles up, turn right at the sign that reads Petroglyphs, at CR 4-18. You’ll have a 14 mile ride down a long and rough dirt road, and you’ll see a sign for the Petroglyphs at the intersection of another, rockier dirt road. Two miles from there, you’ll find a BLM parking lot, and a trail that takes you a quarter of a mile until you find the site.
