“A very accessible, short trail featuring Modoc rock art.”— QuinTCM TCM
Petroglyph Point was once an island in the middle of Tule Lake. Many, many years ago, Modoc peoples canoed out to the island and carved symbols into the soft volcanic rock at its base. This trail passes along the base of Petroglyph Point and offers views of Modoc rock art. A tall fence protects the petroglyphs.
Consider running to the top of Petroglyph Point on Petroglyph Point Trail to gain views of Medicine Lake Volcano and the surrounding basin.
