Swords Park Trail

Skeleton Cliff and Yellowstone Kelly Interpretive Site

May, 2018 by anne.cole

Make sure to take a short (100 yards) detour one mile east end of the trailhead parking area to see the newly-opened Yellowstone Kelly Interpretive Site where frontiersman Yellowstone Kelly was buried. There are interpretive panels about the history of the area.

Skeleton Cliff, just a little further east, is the site of the Crow Tribe's burial area, where the dead were actually placed in the trees.
