The Whispering Ben Trail is a spur trail off the Bighorn Loop Trail that leads to an unusual archaeological site: a boulder used like a bedrock mortar for grinding honey mesquite beans. Native peoples used one of the holes for so many years (probably so many generations) that they pounded all the way through the boulder!
The narrow, unsurfaced trail runs out about 150 yards to end at the archaeological artifact. For details on getting to this trail, see the description of the Bighorn Loop Trail. Please help protect the fragile desert soils and stay on the trail.
