Keyhole Sink Trail

The Keyhole Sink Trail is on Old Route 66, just outside Williams, Arizona.  It’s a short trail although we’re not entirely sure how long it is as we forgot to take the GPS.  According to our invaluable Williams Guide book it’s a half a mile according to the sign at the trailhead it’s a mile but however long it is, it’s a nice hike on a very hot sunny day.

The trail winds down through the pine trees

Ending at a grove of aspens in a box canyon created by ancient lava flows and then shaped by water.

Petroglyphs are pecked into the walls of the canyon, they are quite hard to find.   We found some, but we couldn’t find the one that depicts deer being driven into the canyon by prehistoric hunters.

Although we didn’t see any, prints in the mud show that animals still come to drink in the small pool at the base of the cliffs.

Have fun, we are!
