Hobbs Wash - As a winter
storm approached, four nearly starved scouts, George Hobbs, George Morrill, Lemuel Redd
Sr. and George Sevey, sought shelter for the night in this area on December 27, 1879. The
scouts were exploring for a feasible route for the 250 Mormon (Hole-in-the-Rock) pioneers
to follow from their encampment above the Colorado River Gorge 100 miles west of here.
George Hobbs: "Night overtook us, we camped in this small canyon, this being our
third day without food. I cut my name in the rock with the date I was there, not knowing
that I would survive the journey"
Any vehicle can access the trailhead, all roads are paved.
