Shoals, Indiana: Jug RockA 50-foot-tall rock anomaly that someone thought resembled a jug. The school mascot and sports teams are named "Jug Rox."
- Albright Lane, Shoals, IN
- North edge of town, on the north side of US Hwy 50. Drive slow. You'll see a street sign for Albright Lane. Pull off the highway there and park in the tiny gravel turnoff. Only then will you see Jug Rock back in the trees, and a tiny directional sign, "Jug Rock," with an arrow, that you would never see at highway speed. A path leads through the trees to the Rock.
- Obscured by foliage except in winter.
Visitor Tips and News About Jug Rock
A very small parking area for one vehicle is beside the entrance. The path behind the post is the path to Jug Rock. The driveway is private and cannot be blocked. Along the path there is a fallen tree to crawl under.
Near the path is a tree with the bent up branch. This is an old Indian marker. Indians would bend the young limb, then the limb would grow like this creating a sign to recognize an area. This marker was probably to direct them to the rock. How neat is that?! Before there was a road or town here, there were Indians walking in the woods admiring Jug Rock![Lucy Hudnall, 01/04/2015]

Jug Rox is a great name for a sports team and school mascot. We are terrified by his hammer skull.
Jug rock stands about 50 yards off Hwy 150, at the intersection with Albright St. There is a very small green sign pointing towards rock that is visible if you happen to be traveling west.
