This isn't really a hike, but it is a bit of a scramble to see all the petroglyphs. For all I know there could be hundreds more all over the hill.

From Interstate 8 near Tacna, AZ (between Gila Bend and Yuma) take Exit 37. Head north on this road, Antelope Hill Rd. You can't miss Antelope Hill--it's the one with the big A on it! There are no other hills nearby, anyway. Antelope Hill Rd. goes past the high school, and some houses, then continues on toward the Gila River. When you are in sight of the big railroad bridge, turn right on a gravel road, I think it's County 7th. Anyway, it's easy to see, just before Antelope Hill Rd goes over the river bridge. Just after you make the turn, watch for a kiosk and pull-out area on your right. On the kiosk is information about the petroglyphs, the local history, etc.

The petroglyphs are scattered all over the hillside on boulders. They are somewhat damaged. Please don't add to the damage! There is a trail, but to see them all you will be scrambling a little bit. I didn't climb way up to the cliffs to see if there are more up there.
