Giant rock
Located at the end of Giant Rock Road in Landers
Giant Rock is reputed to be the World’s largest free-standing boulder and was held sacred by the Native Americans of the area. It was a landmark where Northern and Southern tribes met each year. Since those times, Giant Rock has been host to numerous mysteries: German Spies, an explosive death, mysterious tubes leading underground, giant UFO Conventions and more! In early 2000 Giant Rock broke into two pieces. A sign of the millennium or just a campfire that got too hot?
