Split Rock Interpretive Site

As the dominant landmark of the Sweetwater Valley, the unmistakable "gun sight" notch in the summit of Split Rock aimed the emigrants directly at Great South Pass, still more than 75 miles to the west. A BLM interpretive site is at this location.

A second highway turn-out a few miles west offers a better (although reverse) view of the "split" and also a look at the Old Castle, a smaller landmark south of the Trail and highway.

The site has restrooms, trash collection and the hard-surfaced interpretive trail is ADA accessible.
