Born in fire over a billion years ago deep in the roots of an ancient mountain range, Rock Dunder is part of a large igneous feature termed the Lyndhurst granite. Wind, water, and the ice of retreating glacial ice sheets sculpted this hard pink granite into its present shape
Rock Dunder is a wilderness area (230 acres) with carry in, carry out policies. The 3 trails include the Cabin Trail, the Morton Bay Loop, and the Summit Loop.
- The Cabin Trail is an easy 1.3 km walk past a beaver pond, through mixed forest and a white pine plantation.
