The only way to visit the amazing 515-million-year-old Burgess Shale fossil beds is on a hike led by the Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation. Spots book up early.

There are two core hikes, one to Walcott Quarry and another to the adjacent fossil fields on Mt Stephen. Both are strenuous full-day trips with plenty of elevation gain, so you’ll need to be fit and wear proper footwear.
