Worth a stop and the time it takes to read the illustrative signs highlighting the significance of Independence Rock to the Westward expansion of the U.S. As we learned in the 19th Century, the wagon ... more »
We pulled into this rest stop before realizing this is actually a historical site. As a child growing up in the 90's I loved playing Oregon Trail and to make a stop at Independence Rock to learn more ... more »
For years I have driven this road and told everyone it is the best rest stop. This last trip I took the time to hike to the top of Independence Rock. It was wonderful. Searching for old signatures from the 1800's, the views and it was peaceful. An easy hike up the East side. From now on, I will stop and hike up the rock and explore different areas when I drive past. I enjoyed this free historical stop much better than the expensive drive into Little Bighorn National Memorial earlier in the day.
Lots of history. Only complaint is my cell carrier had no signal there and there was no wifi at the rest area, so we had to spend all our time enjoying the scenery and the fresh air. Sneaky bastards. Update: I read recently the state will add wifi here. They won't force you to use it though...
My great grandmother took a wagon train from Rushville, Nebraska to Sherwood, Oregon in 1886 when she was age 10. Her wagon train stopped here along the way. The wagon ruts of thousands of emigrant wagon trains are still visible after more than 100 years! An awesome experience to connect with my own history and that of our country!
Really cool place full of history. Tale a couple hours off, step back in time, and explore!
I was driving for that route n wonder where i can take my break of 10hrs n a driver told me about this place i stay there n i like it thats a nice place ....
