The Clay Banks (Bison Jump)

Clay Banks & Bison Jump

The viewing area located 4 1/2 miles north of Cartwright shows bison jump, clay banks and surrounding valley, a great way to connect history utilizing the interpretive sign. 

The Clay Banks (buffalo jump), a site about 2,500 years old site, used by Sonata and Besant peoples as a hunting tool. Hunters would stampede American Bison over these cliffs, later carving up the animal carcasses below for use as food, tools, and clothing.
