About 3200 years ago, the Native American hunted on the top of Rollins Pass area. This trip will take us to some of the rock walled game drives and rock blinds. Research was started in the 1960, but has been recently been revisited and documented. And yes, if it was a hunting area, there were "points"! This area has much more history. Stan Moore will join us to talk about the railroad history plus more. We will be driving up the Rollins Pass Road on the east portal side to Yankee Doodle Lake and  hike up from there. Should be a lot of wildflowers, as well. This will be a laid back hike with lots of information.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
