Things To Do



Located approximately 30 miles northwest of Hot Springs State Park Legend Rock enables visitors to view over 300 petroglyphs spanning a time- period of thousands of years. These petroglyphs introduce you to multiple cultures and eras long past. The site is administered out of Hot Springs State Park where visitors are recommended to stop before visiting the site. A key and permit is required to attend the site. Keys and permits are available at the State Bath House, located at Hot Springs State Park, the Hot Springs County/ Thermopolis Chamber of Commerce and the Meeteetse Museum. Legend Rock is a special place and one of the highlights of the Big Horn Basin and Wyoming. Legend Rock, while not heavily promoted, is already a world-renowned rock art site. Please enjoy this cultural site and out of respect for the people who tread this sacred ground take only photographs and leave only footprints.
