On Smoke Hole Knob (300 yards west), overlooking this site, is Smoke Hole Cave with its circular chamber, forty feet high and fifteen feet in diameter, resembling an inverted hornet's nest, tapering to a natural chimney or "smoke hole." Its use by Indian tribes and early settlers as a place to "smoke cure" meats gave the name Smoke Hole to the cave and to this twenty-mile picturesque canyon.
