This is on the South end of the Generals Highway. After numerous switchbacks down the mountain, there's a picnic area. There's of course restrooms & picnic tables & information boards telling you about the Native American use of the land. Directly across the road from...More

Personally I round this rock to be a bit of a disappointment but if we wouldn't have stopped here, I wouldn't have got to see the waterfall and beautiful river across the street. That was the highlight of the stop!

Stop quickly, walk across the highway and admire the paintings on the rock. Then look at the cooking holes nearby. Don't forget to read the signs adjacent to the parking lot so you learn what all this is about. Interesting, but not a major stop.

A mildly interesting stop of historic note on your drive along the highway. A location that has been used by native peoples in the past.

We visited Hospital Rock when driving through on the Generals Highway. Hospital Rock is where the Natives use to bring sick people to get better. Very interesting historical spot.

I am so glad I saw this when driving by. It's right off the road, so no hiking is required. The rock art is spectacular and I hope it remains so for generations to come! You can also explore underneath the rock and learn how...More

This is a quick, easy stop from the picinc area. It is neat to see the pictures that are clear. The river is really pretty here as well. It only will take a few minutes of your time and if you are driving from Three...More

Small pictograph, short walk from the parking lot. Worth giving a look, there are a few stairs to climb, this time we went with an elderly uncle with us, he could not climb 10 or so stairs, but was able to see the history and...More
