SFNF Hosts Glorieta Rock Art Tour May 18

Santa Fe, NM – Join the Santa Fe National Forest’s Site Stewards on Saturday, May 18, 2019, to explore two unusual horizontal rock art panels on Glorieta Mesa.

The petroglyphs are unique in both design and location.  Both panels are easily accessible, but the trip will require carpooling in high-clearance vehicles. Sunscreen, snacks, water and closed-toe shoes are recommended.

The Glorieta Rock Tour is free and open to the public, but if you plan to attend please register in advance by calling the Pecos Ranger Station at 505-757-6121. 

The tour will begin at 9 a.m. at the Pecos Ranger Station, 32 South Main Street in Pecos, NM.

Petroglyph creators were storytellers.  Sign up for the rock art tour to find out what their images tell us about them and the times in which they lived.
