Petrified Forest

This 1,000-acre Utah State Park is located adjacent to Wide Hollow Reservoir. It also offers one of Utah’s best and most accessible displays of petrified wood—fossilized trees from millions of years ago. The visitor center offers displays of plant and marine fossils, petrified wood, and fossilized dinosaur bones.
