Great place to let kids explore. Avoid the cliffs over the adjacent buildings...very steep. Wonderful place to find trilobite fragments. Learn what to look for and head up the hill just past the sign indicating the trilobite area. We found about nine within 20 minutes!...More

A great place for kids and families that enjoy nature and exploring. It is off the beaten path a little but worth the trip.

We added this stop into our Cincinnati itinerary as a fun diversion. So glad we did! It doesn't look like much when you pull up, but then you see just how many fossils there are as soon as you leave the pavement. Another reviewer recommended...More

I haven't seen anything like this down South. This is a small park with some interpretation signage. After parking and walking to the small interpretation area, you are looking at a chopped up rocky hill. Those are not rocks, they are fossils that go back...More

Not conveniently. The 67 runs through Shraonville but only during rush hour and the stops are not on Hauck road to my knowledge.

It is open throughout the year. Nobody's patroling the area. It's pretty much self service park. It has public restroom, water fountains.
