"Three Rivers Petroglyph Site" Three Rivers by jujub

Three Rivers Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 38 photos

Three Rivers Petroglyph Site is located about 5 miles east off of US 54, about 25-30 miles north of Alamogordo. It's a nice place to get out and stretch, not to mention to give your car a break. There is a trail that takes you through the petroglyphs, and there is a shaded shelter area for you to rest along the trail. Admission is $3.00 per car, camping, RVs, and picnic permitted.

Bird petroglyphs (lower right corner) are associated with corn and cloud terraces, symbolizing rain. Unfortunately, there is a lot of vandalism; names and other drawings carved in the rocks...
