  • Thrombolites are extremely rare fossil structures that are only found in a few places around the globe. This trail takes you over Marjorie Bridge and onward to a community of primitive lifeforms that will be sure to astound. If you're lucky, you'll even see icebergs in the distance. A wonderful spot to stretch your legs, don't pass it up!
