Lynch Canyon County Park
|Lynch Canyon Open Space - Tower Trail site (open to the public)
This site is a large flat bedrock slab with 51 mortars and 5 cupules (man-made depressions). The mortar holes are in two concentrations. This is one of the easiest sites to get to in the Suisun Valley area, and it is probably the best.
|Lynch Canyon Open Space - North Ridge Trail site (open to the public)
This site is located at a large monolithic boulder with a flat vertical face. Four much smaller boulders at the base of the monolith contain 13 bedrock mortars.
|Lynch Canyon Open Space - Upper Middle Valley Trail site (open to the public)
This site is located at a conspicuous outcrop that looks like the prow of a sinking ship. It is also very close to a pioneer homestead site that is in the process of being restored. Four much smaller boulders and a small slab beneath the prow contain 10 bedrock mortars and some cupules. One of the mortar holes (at left) is unusually large.
