Do not attempt this if wet or threat of rain. Roads are impassable when wet. There is a maze of roads in the area. A GPS route would be a good idea to run a track.

From the log fence work your way north along the cliff looking for a way down to the creek. In about a quarter mile there is a crack that makes for a fairly easy descent. There is usually a few cairns here. Once at the bottom you can pick up a trail headed south and toward the base of the cliff face. In about one hundred yards you'll see a snake pictogram at eye level. Continuing on you'll arrive at the Rainbow Panel which is far above you, look high. You may have to back up towards the creek for a good shot. Binoculars and or a zoom camera would be a plus. There is also a nice panel next to the Rainbow of humanoids.

The earlier in the day you arrive the better so the pictograms are in the shade. Arriving prior to 10 am should allow ample time for photos. Continue moving toward the south along the base of the cliff for another hundred feet. Follow the trail as it goes up. Every few feet look up high for pictograms. Soon you will spot what is referred to as the Segregation Panel. These figures are only about ten inches tall so you have to look hard to see them above you. There are a few other pictograms in this area.

When you have had your fill return the way you came.
