Little Black Mountain Petroglyph Site

Description:

This is an Arizona Site. The site contains some outstanding rock art, representing 6,000 years of human habitation and use. The site has over 500 individual rock-art designs and elements on the cliffs and boulders surrounding the base of a 500-foot mesa. The different designs are associated with the cultures of the Great Basin, Western Anasazi and Lower Colorado River, only a few of the many cultures that have passed this way. Some of the representations of turtles, lizards and bear paws may be symbols with social or religious meanings that are now lost to us.

Directions:

From St. George, UT, travel south on River Rd. 5 miles to the Arizona State Line. Three-tenths of a mile south of the State Line, turn left (east) and drive 4.5 miles to the site.
