Petroglyphs with Antennae

With some care, you can climb down a steep path to the rock and walk right over to see the petroglyphs up close. I've done this several times over 30 years.

Petroglyphs with Antennae

Don't go unless you have rappelling gear. The petroglyphs are located 30 feet down a rock face and cannot be seen from the riverbank or bridge without binoculars or rappelling down the rock face.

Native American Petroglyphs with Antennae

These two clusters of petroglyphs are Native American carvings (and, importantly, possible depictions of alien visitors they had contact with. Some of the glyphs have antennae!). One researcher feels they are of Celtic origin.

You can see them on the river bank right near the Vilas Bridge, which crosses from Bellows Falls to Walpole. You also can see them from the bridge itself. There is a small sign that points you in the right direction. You can find them because of the yellow paint near them.
