About Louisville Swamp:

The boulder is known as "Glacial Boulder" located near the Louisville Swamp on the Minnesota Wildlife Regfuge. The rock could use some cleaning on the backside for additional bouldering problems.
Nearest town or city: Shakopee
Directions: Turn west off of Highway 169 on the road just before the rock/landscaping company (about 2 miles past 145th St. W). The road comes to a T after 0.3 mi, take a right and follow the road into a dude's yard where a sign reads "No parking beyond this point." The road turns left. Walk for 10 minutes (0.5 mi) with marsh on either side, climb a small hill and stop where the gravel road, called Middle Road, intersects the park's main loop, the Mazomani Trail. The Big Rock, a gray and black bulk, larger than a city bus and approximately the same shape, sits out in the open past some trees on the right. See article in the Star Tribune.
