These spectacular ancient rock formations have a history that goes back thousands of years. Legend goes that the smooth patches on the rocks were made by actual mammoths rubbing against them. Although it’s just local lore, we do know that Mammoth Rocks are definitely remnants from a coastline formation that is long gone. In order to see these natural wonders up close, it’s a pretty level four-mile walk along the cliffside. You may not see any real mammoths up close, but views of the rocks and beyond are absolutely marvelous.
