“Great history, very short drive from Oregon Trail Ruts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

It is a shame, that so many people, long after the pioneers carved names on the wall.

However it is definitely worth a stop, especially if you are interested in learning about the Oregon Trail. You will here about Cliff Registry at several different Oregon Trial museums, across the country.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Being from the East, I didn't even know anyplace like this existed. Reading the old dated names chiseled into the rocks is amazing and thought provoking to say the least. It's a shame that people that have come along since those pioneers went through this area, thought they had to carve their own names and dates over many of the old ones. I guess true history doesn't mean as much as having their own name on a rock. I would highly suggest anyone going to this area to check this out as well as the wagon trails nearby.

“worth the drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

this is a bit of a drive, but fun to see all the names and dates! Fun to wonder about the monotony of the trip - broken up by register cliffs/rocks - along the way! Would love to see if names appear on more than one along the trail!!

“Did they write their name here?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I loved reading many of the still legible names and dates. I searched for surnames from my family history and saw some possibilities. Were they my kin?

“Did I waste my time for this?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Long drive out to the cliff. Good size cliff to see, but it appears that every moron from all over has left thier mark in the soft stone.
Impossible to tell the old from the new, as many folks have tried to duplicate old signatures.
