  • Potholes. Not the kind that flatten your tires in the spring, these potholes are of glacial origin. In the vicinity of the Eramosa River here, several boulders became trapped in swirling eddies, making holes in the bedrock (some several metres deep) over the course of thousands of years. There are a few hundred in the park.  edit
  • Harris Woollen Mill Ruins.  edit
