Heard about these glyphs and since it was close by I could check it out easily. Came across a small herd of bighorn sheep not 40 feet off the trail. They didn't seem to mind me too much. There was fresh snow across the trail around White Rocks so it looked like no one had been down the trail in a while but I came across three separate groups going to/from White Rocks while I was out there. The snow made it hard to find the path around the boulders, especially on the east side of the rocks but since the route parallels 340 it wasn't really difficult to route find. Made it back and the bighorn were still just hanging out. I was set to watch the hockey game at 2pm and it was already after 1pm so I didn't have time to do any hiking in Gold Star Canyon unfortunately. I did check out the Wildwood trailhead as well on my way home. I might go and do one of the more challenging trails next time but the snow is also a factor. We'll see!
