Overview
Parowan Gap Petroglyphs is a 0.18 mile one way hike with 11 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 10 miles west-northwest of Parowan Utah. The trailhead is car accessible. October and May are the best months to enjoy this hike.


A very short trail along the road, some paved, some gravel.
Well worth the stop to see the impressive collection of petroglyphs lining both sides of the Parowan Gap.
Mainly geometric and/or symbolic designs with a few anthropomorphs and zoomorphs.
Unusual for a BLM site, there are a number of interpretive signs providing multiple perspectives on the panels, along with the geology of how the gap formed.
