Said to have the best water on the Overland Trail, early pioneers sought out this shady valley. With great effort, wagons had to be lowered down the steep slopes just to enjoy the inviting rest stop. Wagon ruts are still visible on the Windlass Hill. Archeological evidence shows this canyon had always been a favorite gathering place for the last 8,000 years. During the 19th century, Ash Hollow was often called an oasis.
