Description

Petroglyph Beach in Wrangell has the highest concentration of petroglyphs in the southeast region of Alaska . The beach is a little over a mile out of town, and became a State Historic Park in 2000. At least 40 petroglyphs have been found in the area. The site itself is about 8000 years old. There is an accessible boardwalk to a deck overlooking Petroglyph Beach, the Stikine River and Zimovia Straits. Replicas of several designs are displayed on the deck for visitors to make rubbings on. Access to the beach is provided directly from the deck overlook.
