Independence Rock stands 6,028 feet above sea level. The tallest point of the rock is 136 feet above the surrounding terrain. If one were to walk around the base of this rock, the distance covered would be more than a mile. Hiking to the top is approachable from many areas. Pioneer inscriptions are found on the rock face.

History and a nice little hike. Nice view from the top, interesting to think a pioneer was up top of the rock 150 years ago. Nice facility to have packed lunch at (rest stop on Wyo 220)
