Syracuse New York area?

Recommended Posts

Have to come to Syracuse for family emergency. Hoping to get a little free time once things settle and would love to see what fossils might be found in area.

 

Thanks for help

Hey Steve. 
Sorry to hear of the emergency.  Good luck with that. :( 

 

Deep Springs Road site is about an hour away, to the south east of Syracuse.

Also, 45 minutes away, there is a road cut on Swamp Road in Morrisville that produces Devonian fossils as well.

Also, the Tully Site is about 25 minutes away

There may be others closer, but these are pretty easy sites to hunt.  :) 

Good luck.

I also suggest Pompey Center right on Route 20. Skaneateles Formation- Middle Devonian.

Fossildude19, do you know if the quarry (Deep Spring rd) site is accessible? Don't want to drive that far to find it locked up tight. Was able to hit the Swamp Rd site for a bit today. Added a few new finds to my collection. 

 

Might get approval from wife for a full day trip also, so might be looking for a trilobite locale I can get to. Will post some photos of todays finds once I get them cleaned up.

Thanks! Always want to be sure when a spot is listed as private property
