Fossil Mountain Trail is a 1.2 mile loop trail located near Hayden, AL and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
I think this trail is inside rickwood caverns state park and it is a good trail and the cave at rickwood was fun to explore and also a short flat trail was cool also and then we ate at the White House restaurant in warrior,al. Great day
I took my 8 year old nephew & 4 year old son on this hike. They really loved it. The trail was easy enough for me not to worry too hard about them. The trail was exceptionally well marked & it was also free from litter. The rocks are breathtaking. The boys were fascinated at the size of the rocks & how many there were.
The restrooms in the gray building were very clean. Parking was not a problem at all. The gift shop staff was friendly. All around a great day trip & hike for kids just learning.
Thanks Tony for clearing that up. I've looked at this a few times and knew couldn't have been the actual photo. I like when ppl post the actual photos bc I know I like to check the trail out online first.
The picture is not of fossil Mountian Fossil Mountian is lime stone rocks an lots of trees
Nice hike and well marked trail.
Fun little trailer. Great for a Saturday out with small kids. Just far enough that they sleep the whole way home.
Nice little trail. Great if u are taking kids. Lots of great rock formations. We could not see any fossils but we did see lots of animal tracks. The directions on here r not right it is inside rickwood caverns state park.
