Jones Hole Trail and Jones Hole National Fish Hatchery Professional Review and Guide

"Getting to the trailhead involves some driving, but don’t despair—the scenery en route to Jones Hole National Fish Hatchery is spectacular. The road winds up Diamond Mountain, which offers beautiful views and passes scattered ranches with acres and acres of sagebrush fields.

Archaeologists have been able to determine from their finds that the shelter area probably was used for some 7,000 years by the Great Basin, the Uncompahgre Plateau, and the Northwestern Plains cultures. Few places like this exist. Furthermore, researchers were able to trace the progression of sophistication of these peoples from use of the spear to the atlatl to the bow and arrow. Occupancy of Deluge Shelter was between 5000 B.C. and A.D. 1850."
