Island in Time Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Island in Time Trail leads you on a beautiful tour through a desert canyon filled with intricate rock terraces and high cliff walls that have been molded and shaped by wind and water. Interpretive signs posted along the trail describe different ancient fossils and offer interesting details about what the region’s climate and landscape were like more than thirty million years ago.

Two paths can be accessed from the Blue Basin trailhead: the Blue Basin Overlook Trail and the Island in Time Trail.The 0.7-mile Island in Time Trail,described here, is located in the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument and highlights some of the species that roamed the area’s hills and valleys more than thirty millions years ago."
