Upper Marie Creek
|Skyline Park - Upper Marie Creek site (open to the public)
This site is probably an ancient food-gathering camp of the Napato people, who were intermarried with the Suisune and Tolenas. It is near a telephone pole that sits just off the Tuteur Loop trail. There is a rock slab here with 30 or so bedrock mortars that are next to a spring. Just uphill from the mortars is a large house pit that was probably a ceremonial lodge, and there are also a couple of interesting groups of stones that might be ancient fire rings, rather than more recent fire rings left by ranchers.
