CENTER LIMB PIT

A site that was found by the early Tyrrell expeditions, the main attraction here is not the footprints, but the geology exposed by coal mining on an anticline fold axis (see below). On two sides of the fold axis are deep, water-filled pits, with high waterfalls flowing into them in the spring and summer. Only a few poorly preserved T. borealis tracks and trackways are evident on the walls of the pit.
