Fossils and Much, Much More During the 1890s, scientists rediscovered what the Lakota Sioux already knew - bones preserved in one of the most complete Miocene mammal sites in the world. Yet, this place called "Agate" is a landscape that reflects many players

Not too strenuous and offers some fossilized beaver tunnels encased in glass. The trail climbs a bit of a ridge and gives a nice view of the surrounding area. It can be hot in summer; be prepared with water!

I found it more interesting than the main trail. actual on-site fossils encased on site. Simple gravel walk.

Return visit when enroute to another location. Even more impressed than last time. excellent visitor center. and trails.

Very easy walk. Paved all the way up with a couple shaded rest stops along the way. The view is awesome looking out over the valley from the first dig site. There are markers along the trail identifying several of the different plants you'll see.
