a national heritage site well worth the visit!
Jan 2022
Arizona Verde Valley V bar V  is a national heritage site.  It's a beautiful site and very accessible, It's a nice ride ride off of interstate 17,   It's a dirt road, I did not have any problem with GPS but I heard others might have so you could  write the directions out Before you go. If you're a person that has a walking disability. bad back, or you have to walk with the cane it is an achievable hike.   It's also a family friendly area but you have to keep your eye on the kids. There's a minor hill down to the visitor center but  It could be navigated with a wheelchair for person if there is a strong person helping the person in the chair get down and has the strength to help them get up the hill for the way back.  The visitor center is worth seeing and the restrooms are clean and well maintained.  It's a hard pack but sandy  trail out to the main viewing site,  With a slight incline and then flattens out, it's a enjoyable walk and you'll travel along a river area.  There are plenty of areas with shade to stop along the way so you can take your time it's about a mile out. When  You get to the site there's several steps that you'd have to go up to get really close.  Again having someone strong that can help push you up or pull you up the steps for a closer look would help.  If you stay in the flat area on the bottom you'll be about 30' from the cartridge works if you can get up the stairs if you get about 10' away. The petroglyph site is a Cultural markings  Legacy from the Southern Sinagua of the Beaver Creek Community. Both the Verde Valley Archaeological Society and the Friends of the Forest provide interpretive tours and on-site management.  Two full-time volunteers live on-site. Typically, one works the visitor center, while another provides interpretation for visitors at the petroglyphs.  There are some part time locals who volunteer as well. The petroglyphs were created by Southern Sinagua Indigenous residents between about 1150 and 1400 AD. The site was known to early American settlers, and became part of the historic V Bar V ranch around 1907.  About 20% of the petroglyphs are zoomorphs, including snakes, turtles, coyotes, deer and antelope.The next most common types are anthropomorphs and geometric figures, such as spirals and grids. The feeling is that there's a lot of Hopi influence and the Hopi believe that the inhabitants who left were part of the predicted Hopi migration to the homeland northern mesas  One of the panels at V Bar V Heritage Site is referred to as the “Solar Panel” that exhibits unique shadow patterns created by three boulders wedged into the rock face.  There's been plenty of research done on this and one entire book written.  So as well worth a visit.

This site is quite compact, but great for what it is. A short easy 7 minute walk from the parking, to a terrific set of protected rock carvings. At least half the enjoyment was the very knowledgeable docent who explained many aspects we would never have known, along with an extremely friendly ranger on site. A great visit in less than an hour. Word to the wise, you can do 3 great sites together in 4-5 hours, this one, then Montezuma’s Well (just 4 miles away if you take the dirt road) longer on the highway, then Montezuma’s Castle. You can get a good feel for all of them with an hour or so at each and they are close together.

History. Beautiful level walk. Hosts and rangers were super friendly and informative. Don’t use unpacked road over to well. Drive back to interstate and make sure you visit the well. Scenery here is amazing.

The Coconino National Forest area is beautiful. We enjoyed the drive in and out. The Docent at the V Bar V Petroglyph site was wonderful. Knowledgeable, passionate, but also a people person. They wanted the site to matter to us, and in turn, know that we mattered to the site. To the Forest Service. They succeeded. Thanks so much!

The docent at the Petroglypgh site was very informative. It was a flat easy 1/2 Millie hike. After our visit we headed to PJ's Village Pub in Oak Creek Canyon for lunch. I would recommend going there.

We got there as site opened. Had benefit of docent in our group that walked out to site with us (very easy flat, walk). There was as also a docent (guide) at the site who gave us a 20 minute or so overview of petroglyphs. So worth doing. We spent about an hour at site and gift shop. Well worth your time.

It was a beautiful Saturday in early June when i visited this site. Easy to get to off I-17 & the signage on the road leads you to the parking area. Good signage panels tell you the history of the area. It's a short walk to the visitor cabin where you check in. Then it's an easy walk near the stream to the petroglyphs. So many all in one place & the ranger gives a very good talk & can recommend more places for your AZ visit. This stop only takes about 30 to 60 min., but is well worth the time.

This place has an amazing collection of native american petroglyphs. We weren't originally sure that this place would be worth visiting, but we were so glad that we stopped. The ranger on site (who was part native American himself) provided a lot of exceptional information regarding the history and interpretation of the petroglyphs.
