What You'll Like:
The signs that glaciers once covered this area are readily apparent from the topography with its abundance of eskers, kames, kettles and moraines. Eskers, kames and moraines are differently shaped features consisting of gravel or sand deposited by the melting waters under a retreating glacier. Kettles were formed when great blocks of glacial ice broke off and left deep impressions in the earth. All of these landforms are covered by a layer of clay, deposited by a vanished lake. Other outstanding natural features in the park include a 26-metre waterfall, and a stand of 300-year-old red pine.
