Overview

The Mt. Irish Archaeological District is a large area with many boulder piles and low bands of cliffs covered with rock art. Echo Rock is one site in the district, and in fact, the flat faces do produce nice echoes. Native peoples etched a nice array of petroglyphs on the north and west faces of the rock.

While visiting this site, please take care of the area and leave it as you found it so that future generations can come and see it too. Notice that some idiot shot twice at the big bighorn petroglyph -- don't be that guy.
