Grimes Point

Date Placed: September 30, 2010
Letterbox: Traditional
Carver: GreenJello
Planters: GreenJello and Teancum
Location: Grimes Point, Fallon, Churchill, Nevada
Distance: 1/2 mile
Status: Active

About seven miles east of Fallon, just off Highway 50, is the Grimes Point Petroglyph Trail. The Trail features rocks and boulders with carvings as much as eight thousand years old, created by native peoples who were drawn to the shores of ancient Lake Lahontan. Be sure to pick up a free trail guide before setting out.

Directions: Standing in front of the two blue metal flat posts, sight the flat rock at 162 degrees that sits on the perimeter of the asphalt. Standing in front of that rock, take about 10 steps clockwise. There will be a large rock on your right. On the side facing the blue posts you came from, there will be some smaller rocks to remove to find the box.
