    An Evening Look at the Carvings

    27160 County Road 2

    Call: (507) 628-5591

    Explore the rock face in bare feet in the evening to see petroglyphs off the regular path when the lighting is best to view them. Over the past several years, an extensive conservation project identified an additional 3,000 petroglyphs, which until recently have been covered in lichen.

    Visitors can explore on their own, but an interpreter will be available to answer questions and direct visitors to carvings. Visitors should be prepared to walk barefoot on uneven surfaces.
