Hike Rock Glen, view its stunning falls and keep an eye out for fossils, as the area is known worldwide for Devonian-era fossil deposits. Sunday, July 14th. 9:15 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Rock Glen is a nice, 27-hectare park known worldwide for Devonian-era fossil deposits. We will take a 2.5 km hike in the park and stop at a small museum to view the fossil collection and at the falls. There are stairs, boardwalks and bridge allowing visitors to safely explore the steep sides of the glen and the 10-metre-high waterfall just upstream of the Ausable River. Visitors and amateur archaelogists from all parts of North America have found many fossils in the exposed beds dating back 350 million years. Scientific names for these ancient treasures include crinoids, brachiopods and trilobites.
