Walk to the observation tower - Rock-clock walk

Rocks have been formed at different geological ages. On the way from the tent-roof to the observation tower 24 rocks have been placed according to their age, from youngest to oldest, as far back as the Carboniferous period, 300 million years ago. Every step of one metre on the path represents going back in time 3 million years.
