Don’t miss Elephant Rocks State Park while visiting the Log Cabin Inn. It began forming about 250 million years ago during the “great uplifting” of the Ozark Plateau. Vertical cracks began to form and weather and many millions of years took their toll on the granite hillside.
Slowly the corners of giant blocks of uplifted granite began to wear away leaving this awe inspiring train of gigantic pink granite boulders, lined up just like circus elephants. Dumbo, the largest “elephant” is 27 feet tall, 35 feet long and 17 feet wide, weighing in at 680 tons!
The park has a one mile circular "braille trail" with signs in both braille and text. In addition, throughout the park, there are several alternate paths available. Some are handicap-accessible, and others are only for those not using wheelchairs (or strollers).
