Moores Station Petroglyphs


The Moores Station Petroglyph site is located in a small canyon near Moores Station, on the north side of Petroglyph Butte. Some of the petroglyphs are in excellent condition, well worth visiting. Access to the site requires a short and easy hike. The site is undeveloped, and there are no facilities.

Other petroglyph sites in the vicinity of Rachel include the Mount Irish Petroglyph Site near Hiko, accessible from Hwy. 318 and a site near Ash Springs, off US-93.
