Honeycomb Rock
Pine Hills Nature Preserve - Montgomery County Indiana

Dedicated as Indiana's first State Nature Preserve in1969. Pine Hills contains several unique formations known as backbones, very narrow cliffs with very sheer sides (some with rails, some without). The trails lead along these backbones, down to loop trails along the creek beds.

Where Clifty Creek meets Indian Creek, there is a rock formation called Honeycomb Rock. The wall is composed of sandstone dating back over 300 million years ago. Pockets of fossilized sea algae are thought to have been included in the sand and when they eroded - much more quickly than the sand and siltstone - it created the nooks and crannies that make the wall so honeycomb-like.
