“Kind of Neat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you basing your trip to Kelley's Island based on this place. You most likely will be a little dissapointed. Though if your going to the island for other reasons, it is a neat to check out. If your really into rocks and that sort of thing, I imagine you could be there a while. For the average Joe, your looking at 15 minutes if your really walking slow and taking your time.

“Take the time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

The Glacial Grooves only takes a few minutes to walk around and is certainly worth the time. There are several places for photo ops, whether it be the glacial grooves themselves or the breathtaking view as one climbs. Wear non-slip shoes as it was wet and can be slick - an elderly lady was struggling a bit as in many areas there are not steps, but rocks that form a natural path.

“Fascinating view of glacial rocks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

easy to walk around and climb above the rocks and around the glacier and see the grooves. Historical plaques provide a nice interpretation of what you are seeing.
