This national park is the only one that contains a segment of the Historical Route 66 alignment and part of the National Old Trails Highway also passes through it.
The park has over 50,000 acres of designated wilderness and is a great place for hiking and many interesting designated trails are available to everyone. One is where you can walk among the remains of a hundred room village formerly occupied by the Puebloan people centuries ago. There are also petroglyphs on the boulders and walls.
Newspaper Rock is also a place to see hundreds of petroglyphs.
