Location

The Crystal Wash Entrance Rock Art Site is located just northeast of the Pahranagat Valley, about 110 miles north of Las Vegas on Highway 93.

From town, drive north on Interstate 15 to US Highway 93 (Table 1, Site 0674). Exit onto Highway 93 and drive north past Alamo and Ash Springs to the intersection of Highways 93 and 318 (Site 0677). Continue on Highway 93 for 3.16 miles to an obscure dirt road on the left (Site 1096).

Turn left onto the dirt road and drive northwest about 60 yards to a man-gate in the fence that parallels the highway (Site 1097). Park here; this is the trailhead.
