    Courthouse and Jail Rocks are two of the most famous landmarks of the mid 1800's westward migration. Nearby is the Oregon-California Trail, the Mormon Trail, the Pony Express Trail and the Sidney-Deadwood Trail. The rocks were vanguards of the unforgettable scenic wonders that travelers would encounter farther west on the trails, including Chimney Rock and the rugged Scott's Bluffs.

    Chimney Rock National Historic Site
    This was one of the most distinctive features on the Oregon Trail. The entire region around here is dramatic and beautiful, but Chimney Rock really stands out (literally!) The view from the interperative center isn't that much better that the view you'll get from the road, but it's only $2 to get in and there are some interesting displays about life on the westward trails.

    No one can notice the ridges when driving past on the highway, but that is what the whole area is like. And that is what the base of Chimney Rock is like.

    Favorite thing: Visit Chimney Rock.

    Today it is 325 ft from tip to base and 120 ft for the spire.
