Legend Rock Petroglyph Site

This is one of the finest sites for prehistoric rock art in Wyoming. 283 petroglyphs have been found here, depicting bison, elk, humans, and a flying jackrabbit. Not much is known about the people who pecked these into the rock, but it is suspected that these had shamanic significance. Nearby is another prehistoric site, Great Arrow, a stone structure that points toward the Medicine Wheel in the Bighorn Mountains.

From Thermopolis, take WY 120 north to WY 170. Go west 20 miles to BLM road 1305, then 3 miles west to site.
