An easy self-guiding nature trail leads visitors past 36 million year old petrified logs in this one-of-a-kind historic and completely natural attraction; a printed trail guide interprets points of interest. The trail ends at the site's earth science museum, where displays include rocks, minerals, fossils, and petrified woods; a visitor center has educational exhibits and dioramas that include a native wildlife display. Picnicking is permitted, and campgrounds are available.
A registered National Natural Landmark, this is the only petrified forest located in the eastern portion of the United States. Open daily year-round. Closed Christmas Day.
