Visiting Petrified Forest
Petrified Forest is one of the more low-key children of the National Park System. There are no campgrounds, and its scenic route connecting Interstate 40 and highway 180 makes it an easy day trip while traveling through Arizona. The northern section of the park is mostly colorful rock formations and desert vistas. The southerly section transitions into manmade petroglyphs and pueblo ruins, along with the eponymous petrified forest. All are accessible by short hikes. Despite their short length, visitors should be conscious of their water supply and body covering in this dry and exposed environment
