I have been visiting the Park a couple of times every summer since 2009. This park is a very special place to visit because:
it is a natural site for getting up close to what type of animal, mammal, bug, fresh water aquatic life not to mention plant life lived in this area during prehistoric times.
the site is a slice form, in a rocky hillside, of prehistoric vertebrae and non-vertebrae, well marked with discreet signage indicating the era of every level in the hillside.
there are picnic tables but no water source (there may be a source since I visited last)..
I recommend - for any age:
+ visiting early in the a.m. because there isn't any shade (unless you venture to the top to the hill where there are trees) so it gets really hot!
+ Do wear climbing or good hiking shoes because wet or dry the big rocks can be slippery.
+ Bring band aids and antiseptic cleanser for wounds - which will happen (but it's all worth a scrape or cut.)
+ Bring a "cloth" bag (one for each person) or sack to use as a sturdy container for hauling your favorite dusty, ragged fossils home. Plastic is the worst. Tried it...forgot it!
The best part of the visit to the park is...you can take your prize fossils with you! Of course, with respect to the monument it is, do not bring a truck in to haul your prizes away. Just take a bit of the geographical, prehistoric history of what was living here before man. You may find fossils in their full formation, just as they were back then.
Join me in thanking the Trammel family for endowing such a unique piece of treasure for Cincinnati to appreciate - up close and personal.
