Gig Harbor area fossil sites

Recommended Posts

Going to be in the Gig Harbor area of Washington for a couple weeks for work. Not sure how much I'll get to get out, but are there any sites to fossil hunt near there?

I haven't been there, but as always a geologic map will help, and if you use that with google maps, you should be able to find some outcrops.

Ok. Thank you. I'll see if I can find anything on that.

There is a great fossil site about 2 hours from there.  It's on the Olympic peninsula located on Murdock Beach (Strait of Juan De Fuca) near Joyce, Washington.   There is an abundant amount of fossils and agatized fossil sea shells.   A tectonic plate is close by.  It's also a beautiful places with views of Vancouver Island.  Good luck!
