Built in 2000, the Big Rock Visitor Station was the first of its kind at The Morton Arboretum and was intended as a model for future visitor stations. With parking, an open-air shelter, and interpretive signage, the Big Rock Visitor Station is the gateway to the East Woods, specifically the Heritage and Woodland Trails. About a half-mile walk along the Heritage Trail, visitors will find Big Rock, the granite boulder for which the visitor station is named. A shorter, paved walkway also connects to the visitor station to provide a sample of what is visible on the longer, chipped trails.
