History and Sights to See

Across Stony Lake there are well preserved remains of the original bridge that crossed the creek. 

Sandy shores of the lake at the site of Rudy Jacobs’ 1938 cabins.  Just a few clearings, wooden items and remain of old stairs remain.

On a less windy day one can enjoy the beach, the sunset and the distant mountain views.

The southern shore has been virtually untouched since the 1930’s and one is walking in the ruts of the old Model T and Model A Fords.  On the slopes on either side the results of the toil of the pioneers are to be seen, where they converted slopes into a road and cutting with pick and shovel, horse, plow and scoop.
