Moraine and McConnells MillState ParksbyGary M. Fleeger, Kent O. Bushnell,2 and Donald W. Watson21Visitors to Moraine and McConnells Mill State Parks see completely differentscenes and attractions. McConnells Mill has a scenic gorge, waterfalls, ruggedhiking trails, a whitewater stream, and a historic grist mill. Moraine has alarge lake where visitors may go fishing, boating, or swimming, and a gentlebicycle trail. And yet this variety obscures a common geologic foundationand a similar geologic history. How and why two parks that look so different have similar, or related, geologic histories is the story of this park guide,which was originally published as two separate guides (PG 4 and PG 9).Both parks share the same bedrock formations, and both gained their topography from the same glacial events. The bedrock formed 300 millionyears ago from layers of sand, mud, and peat. The topography was formedmainly during the Ice Age (approximately 2 million years ago to 23,000years ago) as rivers diverted by the glaciers cut new channels into the land.Moraine State Park is named for the ground and end moraines depositedby the glaciers. It is somewhat of a misnomer. Little morainal topographyexists within Moraine State Park because little of the park was ever coveredby glaciers.How to Use This GuideThe information in this booklet is organized in this way:*How the bedrock in the parks formed and the mineral resources thatimpacted the regionpages 23.*Glac
