Long Description:

Anywhere in California, water, oak trees and bedrock equals bedrock mortars. But in this area along the Stanislaus river, they are especially plentyfull and well preserved.

In addition to the grinding holes, the place offers stunning views over the North Canyon at Knights Ferry, Callifornia.

The grinding holes are about half a mile up North Canyon Loop. For trail head coordinates, see below.

At the trailhead, there is a small monument in honor of the people who used to live here. The plaque reads:

This monument commemorates the native people Miwuk and Yokuts, who lived, loved and fought for their freedom along the Stanislaus River.
May they be remembered as long as the
river flows. May the salmon again fill the Stanislaus courses.

Trailhead: N 37° 49.230 W 120° 39.859
