Sticks and Stones Hiking Trail
Trees Overhead and Shale Rock Below
This loop explores the geological make up of the Escarpment and highlights the layers of shale rock exposed when the glaciers receded from the Escarpment millions of years ago! Guests will zig-zag through a canopy of trees and will be greeted by a lovely viewing platform at the midway point - perfect for a rest before completing the loop.
