In the Upper Cretaceous period, there was a sea in this area, where thick layers of sandstone and marl were deposited. In the Tertiary, during the process of orogeny, they were uplifted along with the Sudetenland. Erosion, due to the different resistance of individual rock layers to weathering, led to the formation and widening of gaps in the rock mass, creating deep corridors of Błędne Skały.

Wilcze Doły - this is what Errant Rocks were called after World War II or compared to the ruins of an old castle. They were also called Wild Holes.
Legend has it that the Errant Rocks were created by the Mountain King, Liczyrzepa, during his great rage. Once there was a mountain called Skalniak, which was a place of worship of the local pagan people. Once sacrifices were made to the deities of fields and meadows here, a tall, unfamiliar man with a long red beard appeared. However, he did not want to offer sacrifices to idols and it was only the Priest who recognized him as the Mountain Spirit, that is Liczyrzepa, but did not give him the due respect. Ruchero, in great anger, stamped his foot, and the whole Mountain shook, and the rocks began to crack, creating cracks. A rubble of rock blocks was created in the place of the former Mountain. People started to run away, but not all of them found their way in the resulting maze of Errant Rocks. People were afraid to return there for a long time, but when the first daredevils arrived, they discovered strange rock forms, remains of people and animals, as well as wolf lairs. This place was named Wolf Downs.
