Description

Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills eight miles east of Jackson. The park nestles in a little valley 2,400 feet above sea level with open meadows and large valley oaks that once provided the native Americans of this area with an ample supply of acorns. The park was created in 1968 and preserves a great outcropping of marbleized limestone with some 1,185 mortar holes -- the largest collection of bedrock mortars in North America. Events The second Saturday of every month you can enjoy watching Native American Jack Flores perform traditional craft making skills such as basket weaving and flint knapping. Please call the museum for more information. Open sunrise to sunset.
