Look for a low rock wall, known as breastworks, on the hillside.

Wayside exhibits tell of the Donner-Reed Party and Mormon pioneer experiences here. At the top of the low bluff to the west is a low stone breastwork built by the Mormon militia in 1857 for defense against federal troops. Also here is the trailhead for the Little Emigration Canyon Recreation Trail.
