The top of the ledge next to the park trail between the Greenlaw and Maine Feldspar Quarries is an excellent place to show the effects of glacial abrasion. The ledge has been scoured by rock debris dragged along at the base of the moving glacier, forming a flat and polished surface with striations and grooves parallel to the flow direction of the ice. Late-glacial marine sand deposits and dunes composed of windblown sand can be seen at the base of Mt. Apatite.
