Indian Springs Trace Fossil Locality
Location: Fremont County
Size: 40 acres
The Indian Springs Trace Fossil Natural Area includes an outcrop of the Harding Formation which is unusually rich in markings or traces of animals which lived 450 million years ago. Twenty-five types of trace fossils illustrate the behavior of creatures living in the mudflats of an ancient tidal lagoon. Tracks and burrow patterns of pawless armor-plated fish, horseshoe crab, brachiopods and trilobites have been recorded.
