The Big Rocks Wilderness area encompasses the southern-most portion of the North Pahroc Range. Topography of the area includes steep-sided mountains, high walled canyons, and areas covered with large jumbles of boulders, one of which is known as Mecca, by the rock climbing community. These boulder fields are composed of mainly volcanic deposits of welded tufts that have weathered into unusual rock formations. These rock formations were often used as message boards by our ancestors and still exsist in high frequency throughout this area today (pictured).
