  • Erratic Rock State Natural Site

    This State Natural site is 4 acres and has a paved path to the Erratic Rock, a 90-ton rock that was deposited during an Ice Age flood.

This is the largest glacial erratic found in the Willamette Valley. It is a type of rock not normally found in Oregon because it came from the Northern Rocky Mountains. Visitors at Erratic Rock can look out across the vast landscape and imagine the huge amount of water that filled the Willamette Valley during the Ice Age Floods.
