historic site

Dance Hall Rock Rocks trail is a short out & back trail leading to the Dance Hall Rock which is where the 1879-80 Mormon pioneer San Juan Expedition spent a couple of months while the remainder of the road was built to the Colorado River (including chiseling out Hole-in-Rock). Dance was an important part of Mormon society, and the good acoustics of the natural stone amphitheater appealed to the pioneers.
