This is near Mount Trumbull on the Arizona Strip. I Cherokee camped there last night and hiked the trail down a mile and a half and back first thing this morning. The trail leads to a bunch of petroglyphs that start around a half mile down the trail.

Here is an excerpt from the BLM:

Nampaweap means "foot canyon" in Paiute. This canyon may have been an important prehistoric travel corridor from the Grand Canyon to the resources of the ponderosa pine country around Mt. Trumbull.

The rock art is all petroglyphs (incised, pecked or etched into the stone) as opposed to pictograph (painted) designs found at other rock art sites. Most of the major prehistoric cultures known to have inhabited this area over the past 10,000 years left symbols on the rocks here. Archaic, Anasazi and Paiute gyphs can all be seen at Nampaweap.
