  • Stop 4 - Giant's Coffin

    Early 1800s cave visitors called the huge, rectangular boulder 175 feet beneath your feet the "Steamboat".


    By the 1840s, guides and visitors decided the rock looked more like a Giant's Coffin, the name still used for this boulder on the Historic Tour route today.
