Leo Petroglyphs State Memorial
Petroglyphs sites are pretty rare in the eastern states so this is a real treasure even though the figures are weathered and damaged slightly by graffiti. The Fort Ancient Culture of Native Americans who lived in the area from 1000AD-1750AD carved the figures into the flat top of a large sandstone boulder. A wooden shelter with a circular walkway has been built over the boulder to protect it from further damage.
The site is not accessible due to steps down to the shelter and steps on the circular walkway.
The parking lot is large enough for RVs but it may be difficult to turn a large RV around plus the roads in this area are very narrow.
