Three Rivers Petroglyph Site

Join Bureau of Land Management Archaeologist, Trinity Miller, and Independent Researcher and rock art enthusiast Margaret Berrier, for an interpretive hike at the Three Rivers Petroglyph Site. Three Rivers has over 21,000 petroglyphs (rock art carvings) that were made by a group of prehistoric Native Americans that archaeologists refer to as the Jornada Mogollon. Three Rivers was inhabited approximately between 200 to 1400 A.D. The number and concentration of petroglyphs here makes this one of the largest and most interesting rock art sites in the Southwest. The rock art was made with stone tools by removing the dark patina on the exterior of the rock.
