Travel back in time with two different Rock Art tours Visitors to Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic Site are surrounded by the vestiges of thousands of years of human history and millions of years of natural history that gave meaning to the diverse groups of past visitors. There will be two separate tours both beginning at 9 AM. There will be a different guide for each tour.

Rock Art 1 Tour will focus mainly on the Tigua, Kiowa, and Mescalero Apache pictographs. These are among the group of Native Americans who have historically visited Hueco Tanks and consider it a meaningful part of their past and present heritage. This tour does require some scrambling. (Duration is approx. 2 to 3-hours.)

Rock Art 2 Tour will focus on prehistoric images such as animals, birds, and large-eyed figures. The large-eyed figures may have represented rain or storm deities and are attributed to an indigenous group called the Jornada Mogollon. (Duration is approx. 3 to 4-hours.)

Both tours are limited to 25 participants for each tour and reservations will be required. To reserve please call park office at (915)857-1135.  Please be sure to bring sturdy shoes, lots of water, snacks, sun protection, and your sense of adventure! (MAP)
