A historic but steep trail, but if a one legged guy could do it so can you.

Description

This is a short but steep trail detailing the fossil quarrying that existed before the inception of the park.

From the parking area, the trail heads north and is very well-signed. The signs provide information about the geology, fossils, and history of the park.

There are benches along the trail where you can stop to rest and take in the views, but there is no shade so bring lots of water, sunscreen, and probably a hat.
