Split Rock

Split Rock is located in Natrona County. The Bureau of Land Management Interpretive Rest Area lies just across the line in Fremont County. Travel west of Muddy Gap Junction on U.S. Highway 287 for about eight miles to the Split Rock Rest Area on the north side of the highway.

The BLM has developed an attractive rest area here, south of Split Rock. A short hiking trail, with interpretive panels regarding the area and its history, leads to an overlook from which trail ruts are visible. Unfortunately, the location of the rest area precludes seeing the distinctive gunsight notch.

Another 3.5 miles west of the rest area is a historical marker turnout for Split Rock. From here, there is a good view of the gunsight notch from the west.
