Ash Mountain Entrance Sign (1936)

Located at the Ash Mountain entrance to the park, the sign was carved out of blocks of sequoia wood by Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) craftsmen. The post made of a single native timber log is embedded in a rock-faced concrete base. Metal brackets fasten the signboard, carved in the shape of a Native American face, to the post.2
