Parowan Gap Petroglyphs
The Parowan gap was likely a well used corridor by Native Americans traveling through the area. There are all kinds of designs on the smooth face boulders on the east side of the gap. The petroglyphs are believed to be made over a thousand years ago by several different generations and different native groups. The Parowan Gap Petroglyphs are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There are geometric designs, images of lizards, snakes, mountain sheep, bear claws and human figures.
