Few People Know About This New Jersey Quarry Filled With Dinosaur Tracks
New Jersey’s history goes back a long way, far before humans walked what is now the Garden State. Millions of years ago, dinosaurs and other ancient creatures wandered the grounds – and today, their legacy can still be found at one unique fossil park in New Jersey. Riker Hill Fossil Site in Livingston, part of the larger Riker Hill Complex which includes an art park, is one of the only places in New Jersey where you can see ancient fossil tracks. First discovered in 1968, it has now been found to be the site of several thousand remnants of ancient animals. Although the site is now a National Natural Landmark, it is still open to visitors who are willing to leave the unique site as it is, leaving only their own tracks as they walk in the literal footsteps of giants.
