Typical of other historical places in the area. An information sign and several plaques to tell of the struggles of the protection of the Bozeman Trail in the late 1800s.

It's a bit hard to find, but once you do, it's very interesting wild west history. good place to let the littles run around and get their wiggles out.

I am fascinated by the Indian Wars of the 1860s and 70s but had never traveled west to see any of the hallowed battle sites. It is SO amazing to stand in the very spot where history was made; this is an extremely beautiful area...More

Second time we have stopped there. If you are a history buff or especially like western history it is very well worth the stop. Only takes a few minutes to look over the site.

It does not look like much but I learned a lot when I visited the site. What I thought what a wagon box was and what I actually saw gave me a new appreciation for what the men and women went through.
