Why Hike Wolfman Panel

This short, moderately-easy hike leads to a fascinating panel of petroglyphs. The talented artist(s) who created the panel pecked precise figures with well executed details. Images include human-like forms with hands and feet, birds, a shield, a mask, a plant and a number of curious objects.

Beyond the panel the trail drops to a small ruin in an alcove across the wash. The alcove includes a small panel of petroglyphs and one structure in relatively good shape.

The trailhead for the site is just a mile off the main highway, making it an easily accessible site.
