Jelly Roll

The world's largest geological jellyroll

The Lytton Jelly Roll is a cast of a large sand and silt structure mounted on a wall facing the Caboose Park (across from the Visitor Info Center). This rolled layer of silt encased in coarser sands and gravel was uncovered in a gravel pit south of town.

Formed during a glaciation period, this specimen is rare because of its immense size. Usually measured in centimeters, this one measures in meters and is one of the largest, if not the largest, formation of this type in the world.
