Hikers can expect to see the limestone/fossil ridge where the whale bone was found and an old moonshine still. Walking will be less than 1.5 miles for all sites . Hikers should wear appropriate hiking shoes and clothes. The terrain is unlevel and hilly, but not difficult. If you have mobility or serious health issues, you should NOT go on this hike.
