Simply Amazing
by friendofThundergod

This spectacular rock art site gets its name from the maze-like feature that is prominently featured on the main panel of the busy little site. The rock art is Anasazi in origin and is thought to have originated sometime between A.D. 850 and 1300. There is a developed and well-signed trailhead with designated parking and an informative kiosk. There are no restrooms or water at the trailhead.

The Hike
The hike to the rock art site amounts to a pleasant stroll. The grade is generally uphill, but there is a nice flat section across the basin before you make the final little uphill push to the site. The rock art site is located with a cluster of sandstone boulders near the top of a ridgeline. There is no water along the trail and it is exposed to the sun, so keep that in mind during the warmer months. The trail is suitable for families and leashed pets.

The road (Rock House Road) to the trailhead is impassable when wet.
