A prayer labyrinth was found on a plateau above Quarry Trail. In the labyrinth's center were treasures. Everything from a sand dollar to a dime.

The Pacific Sand Dollar was also called the Eccentric Sand Dollar because the design on its top was offset from the center. Related to the sear urchin, it is flattened and burrows into the sand. The Pacific Sand Dollar can live at a depth of 100 to 300 feet (40 to 90 meters) but usually is found in shallow areas.
