Dragonfly Trail is most known for the petroglyphs located approximately 1.5 miles from the trail head. Here visitors can see petroglyphs, during the right months enjoy the many live dragonflies and take in the breath taking scenery.

While enjoying the petroglyphs make sure to:

  • Never deface rock art
  • Not remove rock art
  • Never build fires near the rock art
  • Avoid climbing or leaning on the rock art
  • Never chalk, trace or apply anything to the rock art panels
  • Not touch the pictographs as the oils from your hands can damage or change the pigments of the rock art
