These remarkable mounds would be much better known if they were not hidden along a back road in the middle of nowhere.
The most accessible mound first appears as steep outcrops in the woods north of the road. The forest cover conceals the true height of the mound.

|Love's Labor Lost. Somebody took the effort to climb up here and paint a marriage proposal. Apparently Shelli said no.|
|From the top, two other, even less accessible mounds are visible. This one is to the southwest.|
|A much larger mound to the northwest is completely hidden from ground-level view by the forest.|
|Telephoto view of the northwest mound.|
To the west, Roche a Cri and Friendship Mound are visible. Friendship Mound is the larger one, Roche a Cri is smaller and steeper.
Especially after climbing a steep rock in the middle of nowhere.
The only easy views of any of the cliffs are from County J a mile to the south. The south mound looks like a rounded hill from the north but the south face is an impressive cliff. Drive slowly because the views are very quick through gaps in the tree lines.
