My husband and I trekked into the area to see the huge boulder. He has mobility issues but was able to walk the pretty path into the site. One does not expect to see such a large boulder sitting there. Interesting. If you are interested...More

A short walk from the parking area will lead you to something you've never seen before and something that clearly looks out of place with its surroundings. Gives you a great perspective of where you stand with mother nature if you read the info on...More

The Madison Boulder is a great little side trip to check out. From the parking area it is approximately a 5 minute easy walk. There is a small information board present that explains how, what and when the boulder came to be. Great little piece...More
