Mississippi Petrified Forest

See the world differently…
Take a relaxing walking tour through the Mississippi Petrified Forest on a shady paved trail among the ancient trees. You’ll enjoy the many points of interest along the self-guided 6 block nature trail.

At the end of the nature trail you’ll enter our earth science museum where you can browse among an outstanding collection of fossils, petrified wood and minerals from around the world. Be sure to visit our gift shop where you can purchase a piece of petrified wood to remember your journey through time. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in our beautiful park and try our “Gem Fluming” for stones that you can keep to start your own gem and mineral collection.
