Hike to the remains of a petrified forest, comprised of trees very different from those found in Yellowstone National Park today. Fossilized, or petrified, trees tell us something about the ancient climate of Yellowstone, as well as the geologic forces active at that time that caused the forests to turn to stone. Though you will hike to one remnant forest, you will learn about other fossil forests in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
