Fossils n' More

Set along a stretch of the Ohio where once a series of cascades marked one of this great riverway's chief natural obstacles, Falls of the Ohio State Park is best-known for the prehistoric world that it summons in its limestone strata. Exposed here are Devonian-vintage fossil beds close to 400 million years old, a nice overview of which can be had from the park's information-packed Interpretive Center. Besides getting up-close looks at in-situ fossils (now don't you try to collect any, you here?), you can also stroll the short Woodland Loop Trail through bottomland woods and upland forest.
