The Petrified Forest National Park was established in 1906. The park has one of the world's largest and most colorful concentrations of petrified wood, the colorful painted desert, historic structures, archeological sites, and 225 million year old fossils. It is open from 7 AM to 7 PM during the summer and from 8 AM to 5 PM in the winter. The entrance fee is $10 per car. There are 28 miles worth of stops in the park. You can get a map of the park at the North or South entrances. I recommend entering from the North so you can stop at the Visitors' Center. There are gift shops at both the North and South entrances. You can easily spend 3 to 5 hours in the park if you stop at each place of interest depending on how long you stay at each.
Address: P.O. Box 2217, Petrified Forest, AZ 86028
Directions: The Pertified Forest National Park stretches between Interstate 40 and US Highway 180. Take Exit 311 and enter the park from the North or enter from the South via US 180.
