Enepitsi (pronounced e’noo petes) means “ghost” in Southern Paiute. The Land Hill area was heavily used by both Ancestral Puebloans and Southern Paiute. The river corridor, of which the Enepitsi Trail follows, played an important role in these past cultures. For this reason, the area, no doubt, abounds with ghosts from the past.
Archaic Indians painted long, tapered figures, known as Barrier Canyon style rock art, on these cliffs above the Colorado river near Moab, Utah. In 1980 vandals made an effort to destroy this panel by scrubbing it with stiff brushes and a cleaning abrasive. The NPS attempted to repair some damage, but no attempt was made to restore the panel to its former state.
