About This Destination

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this 2 acre site is adjacent to the Wood River Crossing area where Mormon Trail travelers funneled onto a narrow ridge which separated the Wood River and the wetlands of the Platte River. This created the wide, shallow swale that is still visible today.
