Visit Independence Rock in Wyoming
Visit this historic site to see the large granite rock outcropping among the grassy prairie. The site's namesake, Independence Rock, stands nearly 130 feet high and measures 850 feet wide by 1,900 feet long.
This massive rounded rock has been visited by travelers since the 19th century, when pioneers passed by during their journey along the Emigrant Trail.
During the 19th century, thousands of pioneers traveled past Independence Rock for many decades, leaving their inscriptions on the rock.
Visit this National Historic Site to see the remaining hundreds of names inscribed in the rock, from those early days. View the interpretive signs at the site, to learn more about its rich history, as you make your way to the rock.
Scramble to the top of the rock to view more engravings and to admire the views of the vast Wyoming plains. Be sure to capture a picture of this historic site for a remembrance of your visit.
