“Nice for the kids”

Glacial Grooves State Memorial
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

This attraction is a quick 10 minute view. There are signs along the short trail around the grooves that explain history, etc. it was cool to see, hard for the kids to grasp, but a great learning experience.

The Glacial Grooves were another reminder of the magnificence of God's world. We rode bikes to the site on scenic streets and roads and then viewed the Glacial Grooves. It was awe inspiring.

I'm sure it has historical and geographical significance. But I would definitely not visit the island just to see the groove. I really enjoyed the island, but the glacial groove was just "eh."

amazing to see what the glaciers were capable of. this is a large artifact showing the scrapes that the glaciers made into the rock. There are plaques around the grooves describing kelleys island in the 1800's when it was first settled. the beach is nearby & worth a stop as well

Thousands of years old, the glacial grooves are a spectacular sight - it's so worth the trip to Kelley's Island, which by the way, would be a great place to spend some time getting away from it all. The grooves are amazing - seeing the sheer force that ice can have on rock was instructional.
