The Grimes Point Petroglyph Trail and Hidden Cave are located about 12 miles southeast of Fallon on Highway 50. The Grimes Point Petroglyph Trail is easy walking and allows you to view 'pit and groove' style petroglyphs that are 7,000 years old. Hidden Cave is just down the dirt road from the Grimes Point trailhead. Hidden Cave was a cache and burial site for the ancient inhabitants of the Lahontan Valley. There is an interpretive trail open year round for both sites. Tours of the cave, which require a guide, are offered the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month. They originate at the Churchill County Museum at 9 a.m.
