A panel of Indian rock art near the Wolfe Ranch in Arches National Park was carved by Ute and/or Paiute Indians, sometime between AD 1650 and 1850. The stylized horse and rider, surrounded by bighorn sheep and what appears to be dogs, is typical of Ute Indian art work.
The use of horses by Ute Indians from the mid 1600s changed how they hunted, worked and travelled.
Getting to Wolfe Ranch Petroglyphs
The Wolfe Ranch Petroglyph panel is along the Petroglyph Interpretive Trail, which is a very short detour on the Delicate Arch Trail about 0.25 miles (0.4km) from the Wolfe Ranch / Delicate Arch parking area. The trailhead is about 13 miles (21km) or a 25min drive from the Arches National Park entrance station.
