From here north for approximately 40 miles the parkway passes through or near a geologic region of limestone rich in phosphate deposits.

Abandoned mine shafts in limestone ledges on both sides of the parkway in this immediate area are silent reminders of past mining activity.

A 5-minute walk to your right leads to an abandoned railroad bed and a collapsed mineshaft in a limestone outcrop.
