Long Logs Trail

The Long Logs Trail leads you through
one of the greates concentrations of
petrified wood at Petrified Forest
National Park. This pileup of logs
suggest an ancient log jam created by
prehistoric rivers. A half-hour stroll
along the Long Logs Trail gives a
lasting impression of this amazing
stone wood.
A trail leads to Agate House, a partially
reconstructed Indian pueblo built of
petrified wood.

About 225 million years
ago, flood waters carried
fallen trees here. After
being covered with
sediment they slowly
turned to stone, or
petrified. Some of these
prehistoric conifers stood
200 feet (61 meters) tall.
