Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Tafoni Sandstone Monolith with additional information or photos.
This unique formation was crafted over thousands of years due to a unique weathering process known as tafoni. It has created a honeycomb pattern that is a marvelous sight. From afar, it appears as though a skull has fallen from the sky. Standing next to this natural wonder certainly will make visitors feel small.
Know Before You Go
One can park at the Skagg's Point vista point. With you facing the vista, turn to your left and walk about 50 yards to the entrance of the park. The hike to the monolith is about two and a half miles.
