If you step off the main trail and onto the footpath it will take you to the very top that resembles a big glob of dry clay and has multiple little caves and holes. Prehistoric rocks that were polished by rivers long gone are trapped in it. These rocks are the remnants of a mountain range that used to dominate the Eastern part of Arizona.
