Top rocks of Winnats Pass
Top rocks of Winnats Pass
The pass was once thought to have originated as a giant collapsed cavern; however, a more recent explanation is that it was a ravine between the coral reefs that originally formed the limestone.The name is a corruption of 'wind gates'. A local legend is that the pass is haunted after a young couple were murdered by miners.Source Wikipedia.
