Located just outside of Montrose, the Shavano Valley is one of the most picturesque and important rock art sites in western Colorado. The site was used from at least 1000 BCE to 1900 CE by both the Archaic and Ute peoples. Tours are led by a trained Shavano Valley Petroglyph Docent. Participants must dress for the weather. Sturdy shoes or boots are ideal for the rough trail and steep slopes.
