So many great hikes off coal creek road, but this one started out as a journey to the number 9 mine... We were sadly on the wrong path but we ended up at the ammonite so I'll still call it a win :). 

Any time spent with family in Nature should be cherished.

Trailhead immediately after the bridge on the left headed west, but on the right if you're coming in from town (easterly). 

Beautiful view, 😍

Pretty consistent trail as well, only got a litttle sketchy up ahead by an avalanche path - watch your footing. 


The ammonite! 

So cool to see. There are lots of places to stop for lunch or a snack, but my advice is to back track a little so you’re not in the way of hikers trying to catch a view of the fossil.
