Full Day

Description: A trip to one of the oldest documented sites in North America, where excavation of a rock shelter dates back 12,000 years.  Archaic petroglyphs are found on the walls of the rock shelter.  Ute sites will be visited in the afternoon, along with historic sites and a drive up canyon if time allows.

Hiking:  A moderate downhill hike and return involves 200 feet of elevation change over 0.5 miles to Eagle Rock.  Afternoon visit includes 60’ elevation gain over uneven, boulder-strewn route (visible from below with binoculars). 

Mileage: 150 miles, 2 hours (round trip) with 4 miles of rutted two-track to Eagle Rock parking.  12 miles of maintained county road in with 2 mile side trip involving stream crossing (if favorable conditions) and travel along poorly maintained road to site.

Vehicle:  High clearance
