Long Description:
In the Morton Arboretum, you can find a glacial erratic - a granite boulder that originated in Northern Michigan or Canada left by the retreating glaciers 14,000 years ago.

To find your way back from this spot to the nearest parking area or any of the Main Trail loops, you can take either the 1.3-mile Heritage Trail or the 0.6-mile Woodland Trail.


To visit, you either have to be a member (like we are) of the Morton Arboretum (or reciprocal organization) or pay the daily entrance fee.

The current daily fees are $9.00 for Adults (18–64), $8.00 for Seniors (65+), and $6.00 for Children (3–17). Two-year-olds and under are Free! And there are admission discounts on Wednesdays.

The Morton Arboretum is open 365 days a year. The grounds open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. or sunset, whichever is earlier.

Location Name: Morton Arboretum; Lisle, IL
