  • Balance Rock at Trough Creek State Park - appears to be perched on the edge of a cliff, ready to fall off at any moment into Great Trough Creek far below. This "erosion remnant" has hung here for thousands of years. Once part of a much higher cliff, the hard rock of Balanced Rock was sitting on a layer of soft rock. The soft rock on the cliff face eroded first, easing Balance Rock into its angled perch hanging over the valley. Eventually the soft rock under the back of Balanced Rock eroded away, leaving the rock balanced on the edge of the cliff.
    To preserve the natural beauty of Balanced Rock, please do not spray paint or vandalize any natural features. Trough Creek

  • Ice Mine was probably a prospect hole for early iron miners. They did not discover iron ore, but did create a natural refrigerator. In the winter, cold air diffuses up into the loose rock of the hillside. In the spring and summer, cold air flows down the mountainside and into the ice mine. This causes melting snow water to refreeze when it hits the cold air in the mine. Humid summer air adds more ice until all of the cold air has left the hillside, usually by late summer. Trough Creek

  • Copperas Rocks is named for the coppery-yellow stain on the cliff surface. The crystalline, yellow precipitate is ferrous sulfate that leaches from a small pocket of coal. Although this substance is one of the main pollutants in acid mine drainage, the small quantity here is not harmful to the stream. The small cave at the bottom of the cliff was probably made by early settlers who used ferrous sulfate as a mordant for setting the dye color in cloth. Trough Creek
