Historical Use

The Parowan Gap Petroglyphs is a wind gap in Iron County a few miles south of Parowan. Regarded as a sacred site to the Hopi, Paiute, and Fremont peoples, there are many carvings that represent these people. Migration symbols, writing, and representations of covenants the people made with higher powers, the petroglyphs have a strong spiritual and historical significance.

Current Use

In the current day, the Parowan Petroglyphs are on the national registry of historic places and exists as a draw for visitors to the south of Utah and is under preservation protections as well as having official tours shown through the Gap throughout the year.

Public Access

The Gap is open year-round as a driving or walking experience, as it is around Gap Road from Parowan. The plaques with information throughout the Gap are also accessible to the public, posted along the road.
