Agassiz Rock Reservation Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short, rugged hike tours a hillside made spectacular by the handiwork of the Wisconsin Glacier. Two granite monoliths are the stars of the show, but plan to spend some time on the open granite cap at the top of the hill.

From the gate at the trailhead, follow the broad, rocky path as it climbs abruptly into the woods. Sweeping southeast, the path meets a stream running from a source high on the hill. You’ll traverse a wooden-plank bridge and pass a vernal pool sided with granite rubble and adorned with ferns and luxuriant moss. The trail is firmly packed, well defined, and well marked."
