This place is popular with the locals, who enjoy picnics at the picnic tables scattered below the rocks in the shade. You have to hike a mile in to see the cool red granite "elephant rocks" all in a line. It's definitely worth the walk, which is easy paved path and wheelchair accessible. The rocks at the top are unbelievably huge! I didn't really know what to expect walking in, but it was well worth the 20 miles we drove off route to get there.

We stopped by Elephant Rocks State Park on our trip to see the Johnson Shut-Ins and Taum Sauk State Parks. The rocks were a good chance to climb up to get some amazing views of the mountains.
