Join us as we hike across the desert floor, into and out of the wash bottoms, to the Clark Lake Petroglyph site. This site lies at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains just east of the mouth of Rockhouse Canyon. The petroglyphs, interpreted as an early Cahuilla type, are pecked into the reddish-brown patina of the boulders at the base of the mountains. Other significant features are located nearby.

Difficulty: The hike is a moderate 2.5 - 3 miles round trip.

Bring:  Water, sun protection and a snack and wear comfortable hiking shoes

Meet:  Pegleg Monument (junction of S22 and Henderson Canyon Rd.)

4WD is required. Carpooling will be encouraged.
