The giant elephant-shaped granite boulders are the star at Elephant Rocks State Park. The elephant rocks, which were formed from 1.5 billion year old granite, are giant boulders that stand end-to-end like a train of circus elephants. The rocks have created formations that intrigue geologists, are popular with history buffs interested in the past quarrying, and fascinate children who love to climb on and between the boulders. An easy way to see the rocks is from the interpretative Braille Trail. Picnic tables scattered among the trees provide inviting spots for a picnic lunch.
