Pyramid Shaped Rock, is a rock shaped (somewhat) like a pyramid. It is a great place to camp the night, with a flat clear area for your tent, or a nice place to stop for lunch on a day trip. The rock is adjacent to a swamp with water (normally), and the rock’s proximity to Thor and Asgard Head walks makes it a great base camp. For another adventure, the side trip to Asgard Kiln and Mine are well worth the trip if you’re staying overnight.
