We’re celebrating National Fossil Day, part of Earth Science Week, by taking a walk back in time to reconstruct what the landscape was like here during the Mississippian Period. On this 2-hour hike to a crinoid fossil bed, we'll examine what fossils can tell us about the past and how they form – and why there are so many at this particular location. 2 hours. This is a shortened version of our full-length fossil beds hike; total distance covered will be about 2 miles with a few significant hills.
