Fossil Hill Trail


These Escarpment outcrops on Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy reserve show the life of 400 million years ago.

Please leave the fossils for others to enjoy. Take Hwy 6 and New England Road. 

This trail is a good introduction to Manitoulin's portion of the Niagara Escarpment with exposed rock faces and overhangs.

The Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy was established to preserve the landscape, ecology and wildlife of the Niagara Escarpment by developing and managing a system of nature reserves on which only ecologically sustainable recreational activities would be permitted.
