Trilobite Mountain?


Recommended Posts

Hey there everybody. I'm new to fossil hunting and I heard of a place by me in Port Jervis, New York called Trilobite Mountain. I'm familiar with the trail, I was just curious if there was a specific place along the trail where fossils are found. Any help is appreciated!
