text of marker: "There was common belief among Native Americans that spirits kept animals underground, so, when game animals disappeared that is where they were to be found. Animals would enter and exit through the cracks or rocks. The feet and tracks on boulder 6 create the impression of human and animals walking to the apex of the rock, beginning at ground level. Therefore, the tracks seen on this boulder may represent the animals and spirits coming back into our world. Animal tracks carved into Track Rock boulder 6. [see picture]"
