Bleasdell Boulder Conservation Area

213.gif
Take a journey through time with a short hike to the 'Bleasdell Boulder', one of the largest known glacial erratics in North America, estimated to be 2.3 billion years old. Also known as the Glen Miller Rock, the Boulder was studied by Reverend William Bleasdell in the 1800s who wrote of the rock in scientific journals and brought it to the attention of geologists across Canada. The Boulder measures 13.4 metres long, 7.3 metres wide and 6.7 metres high (44’ x 24’ x22’). That’s almost three story's tall!

For those interested in geocaching, the Boulder is the site of a newly established “EarthCache”. This particular type of cache does not involve people looking for the traditional box, but rather introduces people to unique and special places through web-based listings.
