Dragonfly Trail is most known for the petroglyphs located approximately 2 miles from the trailhead. Here visitors can see petroglyphs, enjoy the many live dragonflies during the right months and take in the breathtaking scenery.


While enjoying the petroglyphs make sure to:

Take pictures
Document where you see petroglyphs in a written form, i.e., a journal
Leave only footprints; take only memories
Respect ancient cultural artifacts
Never deface rock art or attempt to remove the rock art
Never build fires near the rock art
Avoid climbing or leaning on the rock art
Never chalk, trace or apply anything to the rock art panels
Do not touch the petroglyphs as the oils from your hands can damage or change the pigments of the rock art
