Healy Valley Fossil Hunting

Following the Healy Spur Road to the east, will bring you past the Healy Power Plant, onto a gravel road.   Several miles down this road you will arrive at a gate which restricts further access to mining property.   Heading north, up the closest drainage, leads you to areas of red rock, in which vegetative fossils can be found.   Even if you aren’t lucky enough to find a fossil, this is a great area for families to explore.
