A must see for those interested in high desert prehistory and the Fremont Indian culture. For nearly 1,200 years, ancient cultures have left their paintings and etchings carved upon the stone walls of Nine Mile. Considered by many to be the longest natural art galley in the world, Nine Mile Canyon is actually 40 miles of spectacular panels of petroglyphs and pictographs.

Its outstanding rock art has been featured in National Geographic and other national magazines. In the 1800s the canyon was used by both fur trappers and the army. Ancient cliff dwellings and remnants of early pioneer cabins are reminders of those who once called the canyon home. The buff colored cliffs of the canyon are highlighted by balanced rocks and window arches.
