Incredible natural formations

We visited on a beautiful day and really enjoyed learning about the glacial history of the area. We went on a side path and explored the quarry area next to the glacial grooves. I suggest bringing bug spray ; however, if you don't have any, don't let that prevent you from exploring this interesting area.

A must see on the island

Very cool how the glacier carved the groves. Read the info plaques along the way. Stop to peer into the old quarry.

Accessible and very interesting.

Wheelchair and mobility challenged visitors get a great view. All the reader boards are on the accessible part of the trail. For others there is a short trail all around the top. Several sets of steps. A small car parking lot is right at the grooves.

Be sure to visit if you are already heading to the island.

Great piece of history

Been here several times, as I have a house on KI, it is nice to see that this piece of history now has a locks of love theme on the fence.

A quarry where stone was taken off the island in Boulder size pieces. There is a section that has been preserved and is an example of glaciation. You can hike or go birding in this area. A very cool place to see while you’re here.

I did not expect how cool this would be! This is definitely a must see if you are in the area. We biked from the ferry dock to the state park to see this.

Loved this stop the most on our island excursions

I love the history information provided. It really gave meaning to the formation. The setup is great as it allows you to walk all around and over the formation. But is safe since it is fenced.

great grooves!

We rode our bikes to this destination and it was so cool to see the grooves. They are a lot longer than we thought. The quarry view is unexpected too.

Interesting Quick Stop

It’s very interesting to see the grooves. There is plenty of parking for cars or golf carts. It does not take long to walk around. There are some stairs involved. Not bad for kids though. My kids weren’t very interested, but they had fun walking around.

We really enjoyed our visit here. It is amazing to see. We even had a bald eagle fly over us as we were walking up to the groove entrance
