Overview

Take a trip back in time to witness how old stone structures were built by the early settlers. This scenic out and back trail leads you to the mouth of the Virgin River Gorge, where you'll find three rock houses that still have some of the original walls still standing. You'll park on a cliff face with a view of the highway traffic and the Virgin River below. There's not any published information to be found on the structures but that only adds to the mystery and experience of visiting this unique location.
