    Long drive but the mining exhibit and hiking trails were interesting. Disappointed that the fossil is only accessible a few minutes a day if you hit either the 10AM or 2PM tour start times. We arrived at the center at 2:05 and it was locked and deserted. Although another party was also interested, the rangers weren't receptive to unlocking the exhibit off their posted schedule.

    It's a ghost town and an abandoned gold mine and a fabulous fossil/paleontology site. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Well worth the trip to get there.
