Although it was a very hot day and I was walking across the island this site of great geological interest was well worth the effort. That it exists at all is a testament to the foresight of those who, in the face of the nearby...More

This is a small park, easy to find, and easy to see with free access, and limited parking - if you are on the island, why not visit. It is an easy walk around a fenced in area that is the grooves. That they were...More

One of the most unique formations we have seen! Easy to find and access. No hiking to get to it. Older people would not have trouble navigating the path.

One of the few remaining sites to see glacial grooves. It is fenced off so we walked the path around looking down. You can schedule tours and walk in them as we saw people doing so but not sure how they booked that.

This was great to see. It’s located near the beach and restrooms. There are interpretative signs and diagrams. Be aware there are steps to go around to see the grooves from various angles. I would suggest wearing tennis shoes, hiking shoes or very good sandals,...More

It has a nice path, with steps. Not strenuous. There was information posted occasionally along the way.

I was not sure what to expect once we got to the Glacial Grooves. It was OK. Not much to see beyond the fenced off area. The history behind it was interesting. Kids will probably enjoy it.

I’m not sure if it’s part of a park it’s more marketed as natural historic landmark. There is a parking lot but not a specific one dedicated for golf carts. There is no admission to walk around that area and there are fences... More

Its free if getting there get golf cart to check out island. Go to general store best prices for all day rental. If staying at campground its a short walk.
