Tour shows you the site of the largest landslide to have occurred in the country. You will learn to read and thereby understand the features of the basalt cliffs. Once upon the Waterville Plateau, you will see evidence of the continental ice sheet that once covered this area: Withrow Terminal Moraine, Kames, Eskars, Drumlins and Kettles. See the Grand Terrace at Brewster and the source of the Glacial Erratics that cover so much of the Waterville Plateau. Finally, we will see the volcanic feeder dikes at pine canyon.
