The park is located on Route 28, just south of Interstate 80 Exit 81. It is a free public access site where visitors can explore approximately 1.5 miles of trails. The park contains 65 large sandstone boulders which were engraved by Douglas M. Stahlman between 1910 and 1913. The park was years in the works and provides visitors with a unique look at part of the area’s past.

New for this year was the naming of a Small Business of the Year and it was awarded to David and Jen Black of Blackbird Distillery.
