The rock art is all petroglyphs (incised, pecked or etched into the stone) as opposed to pictograph (painted) designs found at other rock art sites. Most of the major prehistoric cultures known to have inhabited this area over the past 10,000 years left symbols on the rocks here. Archaic, Anasazi and Paiute gyphs can all be seen at Nampaweap.
