Many sedimentary rocks from the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras exist in the basins surrounding the pass.
The Olson site (5BL147) is a multi-component rock walled game drive and is but one part of a much larger game drive complex located on Rollins Pass. in 1866; Kansas Pacific in 1869; Colorado Railroad (B. subsidiary) in 1884—two tunnels located; Denver, Utah & Pacific in 1881 (construction started and tunnel located).
Byron Olson and James Benedict conducted work at the site in the late-1960s. The remains of the latter tunneling attempt can still be seen on the northern slope of the rock wall at Yankee Doodle Lake and the detritus from the attempted excavation of the tunnel was placed at the northernmost part of the lake where pulverized granite tailings can be seen rising out of the water.
Paleo-Indians (early Native Americans) were the first to utilize Rollins Pass as a natural, low crossing over the Continental Divide for the purposes of communal hunting of large game, including bighorn sheep and elk.
There are more than 96 documented game drives, including the Olson game drive, found largely above timberline and near the summits of multiple mountain ridges.
Both radiocarbon and lichenometric dating suggest occupation by Native Americans spanning the last 3,200 years, with diagnostic tools suggesting even older use of the site, dating back to more than 10,000 years ago."The Indians, both Ute and Arapahoe, used Rollins Pass. The line included a 23-mile stretch over the top of the Continental Divide, at Rollins Pass, with a two to four percent grade and switchbacks along many sections; the result was one of the highest adhesion (non-cog) standard-gauge railroads ever constructed in North America.
