High on a ridge at the south end of Cherokee, Iowa, Pilot Rock, an enormous glacial boulder, overlooks the Little Sioux River Valley. The rock is composed of Sioux Quartzite, and was carried to its current resting place by the most recent continental glacier, over 20,000 years ago. The rock is approximately 20’ high by 40’ wide and 61’ long. - See more at: http://www.mycountyparks.com/county/Cherokee/Park/Pilot-Rock-Lookout.aspx#sthash.sLlm1VEA.dpuf
