Hickison PetroglyphsAdd to my Trip Planner
Three large panels of petroglyphs are found at Hickison Summit Recreation Area east of Austin on U.S. 50. The site has camping areas, pit toilets, picnic tables and barbecue grills. Pick up a brochure and take the quarter-mile interpretive trail that leads you past the rock carvings to views of Smoky and Monitor valleys.
From Austin, NV, follow US HWY 50 east for about 24 miles. Look for the sign to the Hickison Petroglyph Site. Turns left as directed and follow the dirt road to the campground. The trailhead will be on your left just before you enter the campground.
