1. On the Road of History Marker
Inscription.  The Cant family's touring car might have traveled this trail route frequently. Before highway improvements were made in the 1930s, the trail on which you are standing is a remnant of the historic fabric that makes up this spot, a clue to the way its use has changed. Over time, this automobile's use has also changed, as it was, adapted for use as a ranch vehicle, or "go-devil."
This trail traverses 1/4 mile of slightly inclined terrain to a view of Sheep Rock and the John Day River. Along the way, you'll have an opportunity to see the James Cant Ranch Historic District.
Help us preserve the historic automobile! Do not climb on it or touch it.
