    "Glacier Boulder" Mansfield CT is locally known as Wolf Rock, Wolf Rock Nature Preserve

    Perched atop a sheer forty foot cliff, a huge boulder testifies to the force of the glacier that moved southward through this area, slicing off chunks of rock and steepening slopes. Wolves may have inhabited the area when the town was settled, but by the turn of this century, Wolf Rock had become a favorite destination for a walk. Once part of a large estate, bordered by an extensive stone wall, still visible along Brown's Road, Wolf Rock was the site of an observation tower. The tower is gone, but one of the rings that anchored it is still there.
