Spot Comments:


  • This is a nice stop along your journey across Nevada on Highway 50, the "Loneliest Road in America". This site is operated by BLM. There is a short interpretive trail that takes you to the petroglyphs and an adjacent small campground among the pinyons and junipers. The tables do have awnings over them for shade.

  • This is an interesting spot to view the cave, have a picnic, or make a camp when driving across Highway 50.  Even here it is rather lonely!
