During the Upper Cretaceous period, there was a sea in this area, where thick layers of sandstones and marls were deposited. In the Tertiary, during the orogenesis process, they were uplifted together with Sudetenland. Erosion, due to the different resistance of individual rock layers to weathering, led to the creation and expansion of gaps in the rock massif, creating deep corridors of the Errant Rocks.

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.
The legend says that the Errant Rocks were created by the King of the Mountains, Liczyrzepa, during great anger. There was a mountain called Skalniak, which was a place of worship of the local pagan people. Once a sacrifice of fields and meadows was made here, a tall, unknown man with a long red beard appeared. However, he did not want to sacrifice the idols, and only the priest recognized the Mountain Spirit in him, or Lucharze, but he did not give him due respect. Liczyrzepa, in great anger, stamped his foot and the whole Mountain shook, and the rocks began to crack, creating gaps. In the place of the former Góra, a debris of rock blocks was created. People started to run away, but not everyone found their way in the resulting maze of Errant Rocks. Long people were afraid to come back to this place, but when the first daredevils arrived there, they discovered strange rock forms, remains of people and animals, as well as wolf's lair. This place was named Wolf Downs.
