Maze Stone - Mysterious Petroglyph

The walk is about a mile on a dry, secluded gravel road. We couldn't get too close to the stone because of plant overgrowth around the fence. Beautiful scenery though.

You cannot park near the stone any more, but it was a beautiful walk just as the sun was peeking over the foothills, lots of quail.

A petroglyph of unknown origin graces a small mountain area. Some people call the glyphs everything from old remnants of Cascadians to religious symbols. Take Hwy 74 to the end of California Ave.
