Floating through icebergs during the glacial floods, large rocks were deposited throughout the Willamette Valley. One of those rocks erratically found its way to a spot southwest of McMinnville, Oregon, now labeled Erratic Rock State Natural Site. The 90-ton rock is the largest glacial erratic in the valley.
A variety of ecosystems and wildlife can be found right outside of McMinnville at the 130-acre Miller Woods. Take a closer look at the wildlife that call the woods home by following the trail of covered boards. Under each board you may find snakes, lizards or frogs.
