Snake Gulch is located in the Kanab Creek Wilderness Area of the Kaibab National Forest south of Fredonia, Arizona. Numerous red, white and yellow pictographs decorate the cliffs on both sides of the long gulch. From end to end the Snake Gulch trail stretches out for 21.5 miles. This post only follows it from the east trailhead for 3.7 miles yet in that short distance it passes about 20 rock art sites and a few small ruins.
