I do not think this trail exists. I found the location, but no trail. You walk down a hill to a gate and that seems to be it.

who put's these trails on here? I found the location in the pictures, and there was no trail, I didn't see any fossils, Nothing but a road going down hill to a closed gate. Just down hill from road there are private property signs and no trespassing signs on both sides of the road. I would like to talk to the person who posted this on here, and thank him or her for a big waste of time. unless you know and get permission from the landowner I wouldn't waste my time going to this trail. I'm just glad it's close to roaring river so at least it wasn't a complete waste of time. if your going to post trails on here, at least give a waypoint or two. I can stare at a map and draw lines for a hike from home too..... that doesn't make it a trail!
