A Google Earth Map search marks the center of the parking area & Trailhead of the Sloan Canyon Petroglyph Site at about: 35o 54' 32.44" N 115o 07' 27.53" W. The parking area is in a creek bed at about 2,931 feet elevation.

Among the most common images in the rock-art etchings are of bighorn sheep. It is said that the petroglyphs, for the most part, center on hunting by the Yuman-speaking tribes and Paiutes who visited the Sloan Canyon during the late-summer monsoon seasons, when water was available in the creeks.

The Quechan name for the canyon is "avi hamaila," short for "white mountain" sheep or goats.

One of the Sloan Canyon panels depicts a cowboy and is believed to be American Indian impressions of contact with white settlers and early travelers on the outskirts of the Las Vegas Valley.

There is a lot of information on the internet about how to get to the Sloan Canyon Access Road & Trail, that is no longer up to date, in describing an easy way to get to the Sloan Canyon Access Road.

Basically, the information will lead you on a 4 mile, power line service road, that is uncared for, and rough. Making for a very slow, hard trip.

Well, times have changed; and with the growth and the improvements of Henderson, Nevada; there is a better way to get to the Sloan Canyon Access Road!

We learned about this the "hard way," and from several other travelers to the Sloan Canyon Access Road & Trailhead. We did not learn this until after following the outdated BLM directions!

Therefore, we have the placed the following maps below, to show you both ways, to the Sloan Canyon Access Road.

The directions that we do not recommend come from the BLM website and the first Google map on this page shows the hard part of that way to the Sloan Canyon Access Road.

Here are the BLM directions.

Directions to Sloan Canyon

  1. Take I-15 south to exit 25 (Sloan exit) and turn left at the stop sign.
  2. Turn left onto Las Vegas Blvd. Travel north on Las Vegas Blvd about .1 mile.
  3. Turn right on a dirt road heading east (this road is opposite the north bound freeway entrance for I-15. This road will follow the power line.)
  4. Follow the power line road for approximately 4 miles. Just past power pole number 12084 look for a two-track road on the right. This road is signed “Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area”
  5. Follow this road south for approximately 1 mile. The road will fork, keep to the right.
  6. Road will dead end at the entrance to Petroglyph Canyon.

 

We suggest you ignore the first four steps of their directions by using either of the two routes shown on the last map on this page! They will save you much time, and a rough drive, and they will get you to the access road!
