Bear Mountain

Recommended Posts

Plan on going to Bear Mountain in Rockland county for a day trip soon. Does anyone know of any good fossil hunting sites there?

I lived in that area years ago, and found a lot of purple-violet flourite embedded in calcite in a deep rock cavity about half way up Bear Mtn. But the whole area is metamorphic rock, and as far as I know there are no fossils.

Bear Mountain is part of the Hudson Highlands. It has some interesting minerals but no fossils. If you go a little farther north to Catskill and Kingston then you are in the lower Devonian and there is good fossil hunting.

if you are in that area and like minerals, googling "Anthony's Nose" will produce some great results for reading...and possibly collecting. :)
