Amazing natural wonder!

这是一个相当壮丽的自然奇观——如果您要参观该地区,强烈推荐。麦迪逊巨石是一个重约 5 , 000 吨的由花岗岩制成的冰川不稳定物 - 这是有道理的,因为它是在花岗岩州发现的哈哈。当然,图片并不能完全反映它的真实情况,仅通过阅读统计数据您无法真正了解它的大小 - 这是一个令人惊叹的景象,您必须亲眼所见才能相信! 巨石长 87 英尺,高 23 英尺,宽 37 英尺。此外,巨石部分埋在地下约 10 - 12 英尺处!最近,科学家们已经确定这块巨石的年龄约为 14 , 000 岁。多年前,冰川后退就留下了它。 你会发现它沿着一条土路,有一个小而粗糙的土停车场 - 有一些大而深的坑洼,所以我建议缓慢而小心地驾驶,尤其是对于低间隙车辆。但这是可行的。 需要沿着一条土路进行一段短途、非常平坦的徒步旅行,但这条路维护得很好而且很容易——单程大约 1 / 2 英里。如果你在秋天来访,沿途你会看到一些可爱的颜色!我去过两次——2021年10月中下旬和2023年10月上旬。十月中下旬的颜色比十月初要多得多,但每年的颜色也有所不同。 您会在白山国家森林边缘找到这块巨石,距离新罕布什尔州著名的秋季色彩高速公路坎克 (The Kanc) 仅数英里。该地区还有许多其他景点 - 许多河流和景观等 - 以及必看的历史悠久的奥尔巴尼廊桥(距离酒店不到 10 英里)。 参观和停车都是免费的 - 请注意,该地区没有任何卫生间。谷歌地图会带你直接到达——但该地区没有信号,所以我建议你来之前下载离线地图。 可悲的是,在我上次访问时,有人在巨石上的几个地方画了涂鸦,但公园管理员在那里清理了它。希望他们能够将其删除。我永远无法理解为什么人们觉得有必要像这样破坏自然奇观——每次都让我心碎。

Nice park with a short easy walk to the boulder. Big rock near a small creek. Went with local friends and really loved the day.

Quite a magnificent natural wonder - highly recommend if you're visiting the area. The Madison Boulder is a ~5,000 ton glacial erratic made of granite - which makes sense since it's found in the Granite State lol. Of course, the pictures don't do it justice and you can't really fathom the size just by reading the stats alone - it's an awe inspiring sight that you have to see to believe!

The boulder measures 87 feet long, 23 feet tall, and 37 feet wide. Also, the boulder is partially buried at about 10-12 feet underground! And recently scientists have been able to determine that the boulder is around 14,000 years old. Left behind all those years ago by a retreating glacier.

You'll find it down a dirt road with a small, rough dirt parking lot - there are some large, deep potholes so I recommend to drive slow and careful, especially with low clearance vehicles. But it's doable.

A short, very flat hike is required along a dirt road but it's well maintained and easy - about 1/2 mile one way. If you visit in fall, you'll be treated to some lovely colors along the way! I visited twice - mid to late October 2021 and early October 2023. Mid to late October had much more colors than early October but it also varies from year to year.

You'll find the boulder on the edge of the White Mountain National Forest and only a few miles away from The Kanc - a famous highway in NH for the fall colors. And there are lots of other attractions in the area - lots of rivers and vistas and things like that - as well as the historic Albany Covered Bridge which is a must see (less than 10 miles away).

It's free to visit and park - be aware there aren't any restrooms in the area. Google maps will take you right to it - but signal is nonexistent in the area so I recommend to download offline maps before you come.

Sadly, on my last visit, someone had put graffiti in several places on the boulder- but a park ranger was there to clean it up. Hopefully they were able to get it removed. I'll never understand why people feel the need to deface natural wonders like that - breaks my heart every time.

I mean, it's a rock. It's big. There is not much more to say. The only reason why it is not 5 stars is because there is a lot of graffiti on it.

We visited the boulder, and weren't sure what to expect. It's off the main road a bit, with a small parking lot and well-trod path to the boulder. It's huge - a massive chunk of granite that hitched a ride tens of thousands of years ago. But that's kinda it - we walked around it a few times, read the signs, went "Neat!" and continued on our way.

A fascinating little side trip if you’re planning on driving The Kanc. At 4662 tons, 87 feet long and 37 feet high, to say this thing is huge is a tad underwhelming lol.

There’s a little parking area that was virtually empty on my visit - me and one other couple were there. To get to it, you have to drive a very bumpy dirt road so if you have a low vehicle, be really slow and careful ....had some large, deep potholes and wash boarding! The car behind me didn’t even dare it and turned around lol! Trust me, it’s worth it tho!

There’s a short, flat hike to get to the boulder after you park - it’s so lovely and peaceful! And during October, the vibrant fall colors make it a marvelous wonderland to meander through! Some of the path is paved and some isn’t - mostly just soft, dark dirt. Once you reach the boulder, the sheer size will have you in awe! There’s plenty of pathway to walk around it and take photos etc. There are a couple of signs around with info about the boulder.

There are no bathrooms and the cell/internet signal is non-existent so plan accordingly!

This is one of those odd, fascinating, natural attractions that you will be happy to say you stopped and took it in. Short drive down a dirt road, followed by a short, easy 10 minute walk to the boulder/glacial erratic. Educational & Entertaining. Enjoy your visit!

En route to Conway we took a small detour onto the 113 off the 16, and once in Madison, followed the signs for the Boulder - very well signposted. You should find it easily. The small car parking lot holds about five cars. Be sure to wear insect repellant as you have a short five minute walk along a broad flat footpath through a forest in order to reach the Boulder. WOW. It's a magnificent example of a glacial erratic - a massive rock that has been deposited here by a glacier. There is a small information board explaining it all and great photo shots from all angles. And it's absolutely FREE of charge! Fantastic. Our only disappointment was that one or two senseless people have graffitied parts of the Boulder. Thankfully their actions are not visible from a distance, only close up.

That’s one huge rounded rock. North America’s biggest glacial eratic means the glacier plucked it from about two miles away and carried it here. When the glacier melted, it was stranded. One of the biggest in the world. Worth seeing. Minimal signage does a good job of explaining. Easy to drive to small parking lot. Then walk on a wide level gravel path for about 2 hundred yards through a beautiful forrest. Everything well marked. A must-see for nature lovers.

My husband and I trekked into the area to see the huge boulder. He has mobility issues but was able to walk the pretty path into the site. One does not expect to see such a large boulder sitting there. Interesting. If you are interested in geological features you might want to check out the large boulder at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester, MA. It is 60 ft. high and 2 hundred yards wide. It was said to be an ancient ritual stone used by the Native Americans in the area. Unlike the Madison boulder the one in Gloucester is accessible from the back by steps that have been carved into the stone.
