Crow Canyon Trails

Located southeast of Aztec, NM, in the Largo Canyon region is the Crow Canyon National Register District. It is within this area that the Bureau of Land Management has identified pueblitos, cliff storage structures, and the best-known collection of 16th-18th century Navajo petroglyphs (carved rock art) in the American Southwest. In addition, earlier Ancestral Puebloan images can also be found among the Navajo rock art in Crow Canyon. Hundreds of images of animals, humans, supernatural beings, and other images such as corn plants and bows and arrows can be found. Most of the images are clustered in what are referred to as "panels," on the lower cliff faces of the canyon.
