Petroglyph National Monument

Petroglyph National Monument

See the Famous Petroglyphs in Albuquerque

Stretching for seventeen miles near Albuquerque, Petroglyph National Monument is one of the largest petroglyph sites in the United States.

Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the petroglyphs were created between four hundred and seven hundred years ago.

Petroglyphs are shapes and symbols carved into stone in order to pass on information. The petroglyphs found at Petroglyph National Monument are believed to have been created by Native Americans and Spanish settlers who passed through the northwestern part of New Mexico.

Visitors are able to learn about the history of the petroglyphs and gain additional information about the people who created them by visiting the Visitor’s Center onsite at the monument. For a closer look at the most well-preserved petroglyphs, trails are available.

Boca Negra Canyon offers three separate trails to see about one hundred different petroglyphs along their routes. Rinconada Canyon offers a single trail that is just over two miles in length with the opportunity to view up to five hundred petroglyphs. After viewing the petroglyphs firsthand, visitors can stop by the bookstore and grab additional educational materials to enhance their knowledge of Petroglyph and its cultural history.
