Poricy Park Fossil Beds Trail

Poricy Park Fossil Beds Trail

Oh the fossil rush! It sets in as soon as you find the first shark’s tooth or ossified shell. But even without that amazing treasure hunt, the trail is a lovely adventure – meandering along the stream with ample beaches for hunkering down.

We were lucky to find a fossil – and so will you be, based on my casual survey of Poricy visitors – 100% of whom found at least 1. (Even 60 million years ago, sharks lost up to 35,000 teeth (each!) in their lifetimes, so your odds are pretty good :-))

Bring a screen and a hand trowel – and watch out for the glass that is even more abundant than the fossils.


Big Brook Preserve, less than 20 minutes from Poricy Fossil Beds, is an equally lovely trail – and as generous with its fossils.
