This Stonehenge-style council ring looks like a small amphitheater overlooking the Galena River Valley. Giant stone markers align with the summer and winter solstices.

Short Walk: The ring is located less than a quarter mile from the parking lot.

Family Friendly: Telescopes let kids look at things in the distance.
