Changes in Fossil Discovery Trail Access
Contact: Brianna Candelaria, (435) 781-7700
Superintendent Mary Risser announced changes to Fossil Discovery Trail access will be in place until construction of the new Quarry Visitor Center and Quarry Exhibit Hall is complete.
Preparations for construction have begun. Because access to the Fossil Discovery Trail requires driving through the construction zone, visitor access to the trail will be only by shuttle. The shuttle provides free transportation from the temporary visitor center, located just outside the park boundary, to and from the trailhead. The shuttle will be available during the morning hours four days a week in the spring and fall beginning April 10. During the summer, the shuttle will be available daily during the morning hours. Access to the Fossil Discovery Trail by means other than the shuttle is not permitted.
