Fossil Falls, while not as impressive as some of the geological sights in California, was worth a short stop to stretch the legs. Just a short 0.2 mile trail from the parking lot takes you to the small canyon of the black fossil rocks.

Very interesting geological formation. Easy to get to but very easy to miss as well. Very few signs from the freeway. Rough road once you get out from the 395 but passable by any car. Short walk to the Fossil Falls from the parking lot....More
