Author Full Detail Guide
Verrado Petroglyphs is a 1.45 mile one way hike with 285 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 20 miles west-southwest of Glendale Arizona. The trailhead is car accessible. January and February are the best months to enjoy this hike.

Overview: Starting at Verrado's trailhead, the trail heads a short ways to a petroglyph site. While a little rocky at times, the trail is easy. To deter vandals, a very necessary fence with barbed-wire has been placed around the site. It's worth a look-see if you're in the area.
