The McConkie Ranch Petroglyphs are located in Dry Fork Canyon near Vernal, Utah. The trail stretches for almost 3/4 of a mile along the cliffs above McConkie Ranch displaying numerous panels of rock art that include mostly petroglyphs and a few pictographs in what is called the Classic Vernal Style. The people represented by the images were apparently headhunters as depicted in several of the panels.
