All of us enjoyed the experience of scanning the rock for names. It brings history quite a bit closer to see the actual people who journeyed out West back in the 1800s. Sad to see all the people from the 1970 and 80s who felt the need to add their names. But still an important site.

Came here today and found our family members names from the 80’s. Other than seeing some old signatures of travelers over the years there’s not much here. It’s just a quick stop.

We made a short stop here while exploring the Oregon Trail sites. Parking lot has plenty of room, there is a toilet but not sure if it was open. You really do have to look for the historical signatures as many have worn down or are surrounded by newer signatures or graffiti. There is an area against the cliff that is fenced that has some easier to find ones from 1800’s but they are still jumbled up with newer names. Still it was impressive to think that people from the 1800’s carved their names in the rock on the way West. A fenced-in area near the bathrooms appears to have some graves but was not really marked. We spent about 20 minutes here.

My husband, a friend and I visited Register Cliff on a Saturday in August. The Register Cliff was in a pretty area in sight of the Platte River. It was very difficult to find the historic signatures due to lots of vandalism/graffiti. The signatures were supposed to date back to the late 1700’s but we did not see those. Most of the signatures were new names and dates. There was a small cave but it had a locked door (like a jail cell). We spent 10 minutes at the site. It was worth a short stop in combination with the Oregon Trail Ruts State Historic Site (5 minutes away).

We enjoyed scanning the rocks for the historic names and dates. There is a lot of vandalism, but if you take the path around the corner they have been better protect. Very cool to see these names.
