Burgess Shale Fossils Hike -
Mt. Stephen Trilobite Beds, Field B.C.
This sightseeing / hiking tour is for physically capable individuals looking for a challenge. The hike proceeds up a steep wilderness mountain trail and is not recommended for individuals who have a fear of heights or any joint issues or medical problems that may effect their well being. The location of the Mt. Stephen Fossil Beds is indicated by the white X on the photo of the mountain above. On site, participants will find numerous fossils representative of the Cambrian Burgess Shale that date back approximately 520 million years - some of the oldest fossils on Earth!! Fossil buffs will find trilobites, anomalocaris, and maybe a wiwaxi. Recent GeoHistory sponsored research into the Field Lanslide - discovered by GeoHistory's founder in the 1990's - has rewritten both the Cambrian and structural history of the area, solving the century old geological puzzle of the Mount Stephen Trilobite Beds and challenging the widely accepted, published Burgess depositional models and Main Range structural models. The first published article summarizing the forthcoming technical papers from this research is available for viewing via this link: Geology of the Mount Stephen Trilobite Beds and Adjacent Strata. The Mt. Stephen Fossil Beds are located in Yoho National Park above the town of Field, British Columbia and provide unsurpassed spectacular views of the Kicking Horse River Valley and of the surrounding mountains.
