A trackway is a set of footprints showing part of the pathway of an ancient creature. This trackway, found at Horton Bluff, is 20 metres (approximately 66 feet) long and includes 27 exceptionally large footprints. These are the largest fossilised amphibian footprints ever found in rocks of this age. No bones from a creature old enough and large enough to have made these tracks have ever been found in Canada. Trackways are important to scientists because an animal (which has only one skeleton) can leave many sets of footprints in its life.
