Sanilac Petroglyphs Historic Site, also known as the Sanilac Petroglyphs State Historic Park, is located in Cass City, Michigan. The property is comprised of over 240 acres and is home to what is believed to be the only rock carvings which have been attributed to the work of Native American Indians.
The site has been officially declared a historic monument by the National Register of Historic Places. In recent years, there's been some concern as to the future longevity of the carvings if they are not carefully preserved. To date, this area remains a public facility though whether that will change in the future is unknown.
There is one trail which encompasses a mile on the premises. It provides picturesque views of the Little Cass River and crosses over this lovely body of water twice in its loop. The park itself is housed in Greenleaf Township, Sanilac County on the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.
Your furry family members are permitted to join their owners on the one on-premise trail but must remain leashed at all times. There are no amenities provided for canine or human use at this historic recreational site. Owners should take care to ensure they have drinking water, a dog dish, and poop bags with them. It is expected that all owners will provide canine waste removal services.

Recreation Passports are available for $11 at the time of vehicle permit renewals for Michigan residents.
