Location Information
Hospital Rock lies in the Foothills area of the park at an elevation of 3,000 feet. The site is now a picnic area with a short trail which leads to the Middle Fork Kaweah River. At one time in history the Western Mono tribe lived in this area. Hospital rock provides evidence of their existence in the area, in the form of pictographs. These painted images and interpretive panels give information about the Mono culture and their life in the region

Hospital Rock
This pleasant site on the Middle Fork of the Kaweah River was once home to nearly 500 Native Americans belonging to the Potwisha sub-group of the Monache, or Western Mono, Indians. Archeological evidence indicates that Indians settled in this area as early as 1350. Today, visitors to Hospital Rock can still view ancient rock paintings, or pictographs, and bedrock mortars used to grind acorns. The area got its present name in 1873, when James Everton stayed here to recover from a gunshot wound he had received while stumbling into a shotgun snare set to trap bear.
