"This short interpretive trail loops over a small hill next to the visitor center called Pinon Point (or Pinyon Point). The leaflet for the trail describes Kwaaymii Indian uses of native plants for food, shelter, clothing, and medicine. Bedrock morteros (deep holes) and metates (shallow depressions) used for grinding acorns can be seen along the trail. The Kwaaymii, the most recent Native American inhabitants of the Laguna Mountains, were a subtribe of the Kumeyaay Indians."
