The Great Stone River is located between the Greater and Middle Taganay Ranges and stretches from the north-east to the southwest for about 6 km, reaching a width of 20 to 270 m. The stone river consists of large blocks up to 30 m³ in volume, but on average 3 -4 m³. At 100 square meters. Meters is located up to 300 blocks, in depth they lie not less than 4-6 meters, i.е. In 3-4 layers. There is no vegetation other than lichens here. Nothing can grow through a stone pile. Under the "channel" of ancient stone streams, many mountain streams are often buried. Stone rivers consist mainly of quartzites, and on Taganay - from their variety - aventurine. The origin of stone rivers has not been fully studied, there are versions that the Great Stone formed a glacier during the descent from the Taganay Mountains. Many mistakenly call the stone river a kurumnik. Unlike the Kurum, which continues to slowly slip down today, the Great Stone River is now practically stationary, and the slope here does not exceed 2.5 °.
