    Call: (507) 628-5591

    Explore the rock face in bare feet to see some of the newly uncovered petroglyphs that are located away from the regular path. Visitors can explore on their own, but an interpreter will be available to answer questions and direct visitors to carvings. Over the past several years, an extensive conservation project identified an additional 3,000 petroglyphs, which until recently have been covered in lichen. Visitors should be prepared for walking on uneven surfaces.
