Wandering off by myself, I came across this historical marker when we were finishing up the hike on Saturday at Sea Ranch.

This site is located near Sea Ranch Trail Marker #22B and the Knipp-Stengel Barn. The Sea Ranch Archives Committee has identified twenty-six historic sites scattered about The Sea Ranch. They have constructed trail markers with information explaining the significance of each place. They were placed as part of The Sea Ranch 50th anniversary being celebrated from Memorial Day 2014 to Memorial Day 2015. The GPS coordinates for this location are 38° 42' 55.9" N 123° 27' 19.2" W.

For almost 100 years the area viewed from this spot was the major location of cattle ranching activity. This was the site of cattle raising, butchering and distribution to local lumber mills and settlements.
