historic site

Register Cliff State Historic Site (RCSHS) represents one of the best “trail registers in the desert.” Countless emigrants inscribed their names, dates, places of origin and messages into the soft sandstone cliffs. During the peak of the westward movement of the 1840’s and 1850’s, Register Cliff was an important landmark along the California, Oregon and Mormon trails.

Four star for history. The inscriptions are for the most part faint and have had a lot of vandalism or more recent inscriptions which diminished the site. Still historically significant and should be done withe the Oregon trail ruts just a mile or two down the road.
