The program is FREE and those attending are encouraged to wear good walking shoes and bring water to drink. For information call Nancy Dalton 435-463-3735.

The Parowan Gap, located 14 miles northwest of Parowan, is a natural mountain pass with numerous petroglypic panels and several rock outcroppings that cast shadows at specific times of the year signaling the changing of seasons. Based on archaeological studies, native people traveled and inhabited the area as far back as 2500-3000 B.C. As each generation came through, they left their messages of how they survived, where they found food, their traditions, and most importantly, a sophisticated calendaring system including the observation of the sun, moon, and planets. These messages are depicted as petroglyphs on the rock panels in the Gap.

Directions:
From Cedar City – Go north on Main Street which will become Hwy 130. Continue north for 13.5 miles then turn east and go 2.5 miles on the Gap Road.
From Parowan – Go north on Main Street to 400 North, turn west and drive under the interstate and continue west for 10.5 miles
