Description

The Fossil Bench Trail starts at the intersection of the Wade Mountain Greenway and the Bostick Trail. It runs along a natural bench on wade mountain on what was an old logging road. A majority of the trail is doubletrack with some large flat rocks that can be slippery when wet. At the 1-mile mark, the trail meets up with the other end of the Bostick Trail.

From here, the trail continues the old logging road but it is not a maintained section of the trail and is overgrown. You'll know you have reached the trail's end when you come to a large white Land Trust sign indicating the end of their property.
