This is an offering fire that
provides light and direction
for all who visit. At the base
of the fire there are a series
of tribal motifs that
represent the passage of the
sun. A "Tree on the Hill" motif
illustrates the passage of the
seasons; [sic] the calendar for the
Native People.

This location is Overlook 13 (see map below) in a series of sites that comprise the Tribal Heritage Crossing of the Wiouwash State Trail. Click here for more information about the Tribal Heritage Crossing project and links to photos / transcriptions of all markers on the Trail.

The entrance (I used) to the Tribal Heritage Crossing of the Wiouwash State Trail is located adjacent to the parking lot for Two Brothers Family Restaurant, located at 1930 Rath Lane, Oshkosh, Wisconsin 54904.

NOTE: The parking lot adjacent to the restaurant is posted as "for customers only". However, there is plenty of parking on Rath Lane. Be sure to check the Google Map coordinates before heading out.

NOTE: The trial loop is about four miles in length.

The path is right next to the highway!
