There are three other formations of note along the tour route. They are the sinkhole which is over 1500 feet deep; the altar which was used by members of the CCC when they wanted to get married; and the aptly named "Braincrusher" which hangs down in the middle of the walkway and is low enough for kids to bump their heads too, so watch out.

Address: 16721 E. Old Spanish Trail, Vail, AZ 85641
