Its not located in Delta. It is 37 miles outside of Delta and then another 20 miles off of the main road.

Despite this, it was worth it. As other reviewers have said, you will get dusty. Its very hot, so bring lots of water and food.

My son and I found plenty of trilobites. You will find fossils. You will get hot and dirty.

Sure fire way to get some trilobites. Bring water and plan to get dusty. It's enjoyable if you like fossils. Probably not worth it for kids under 8 as there isn't much else to do. And if they get bored ...

Great. The Roadtrippers app got me there no problem. My map apps stopped working but the GPS in Roadtrippers was great!

Cole showed us a great place to look for fossils.
