Long Description:
Located off of of State Highway 18 neat Rabbit Springs Road is the Chimney Rock marker. There is a convienient parking area in front of the marker where you can park, get out and view the marker. Next to the marker is a vandalized marker of unknown origin.

Conflicts between Indians and white settlers over the rich lands of the San Bernardino Mountains culminated in the battle at Chimney Rock on February 16, 1867. Although the Indians defended themselves fiercely, they were forced to retreat into the desert. In the years following, the Indians' traditional mountain food gathering areas were lost to white encroachment.
