There is no signage on the road, so please use the following directions to find the location. You can input the above address. If you are driving Northbound, you will pass Houston Ave on the left.  Then pass two gravel parking areas on the right. Take the next immediate right. When you turn in, you will see a sign that says "The Bluffs Scenic Shoreline picnic area." If you get to the bridge with a pavilion, you have gone too far. Please park in the loop and meet at the picnic area to check in and get seated.

There is a $3 honor pay box at this park.

We will begin promptly, so please plan to arrive before the start time to sign in and ensure punctuality.

What to Expect

We will do 3 activities that will teach kids about the rock cycle, types of rocks, and erosion. These will take about an hour. We will then walk to the shore area to play a “rocks and not rocks” game. After this, you are free to stay and explore, or head back at your leisure.

What to Bring

Bugspray, Water bottle, Optional: Water shoes and shorts (we will not be swimming)
