“Massive petrified trees are the main event along this paved path.”— Hunter R
The trail is mostly flat and quite short, which makes this an easy option to see many of the most famous samples of the petrified forest.
The petrified tree samples that are present along the trail are the result of a unique mineral composition. The minerals that replaced the original tree materials here are brilliantly colored and give visitors the impression that all of the colors of the rainbow are represented. Even visitors who have previously witnessed petrified forests elsewhere will want to stop here to admire the colorful array of samples.
