After being basically pleased in St. Georges, UT and very disappointed in Copper Ridge, UT, we lowered our expectations for this location, yet left very impressed. This is not a "professionally" curated museum, but the actual tracks are exceptional. Our young guide, Faith, was obviously not a scholar, but she did point out the tracks and other impressions in the... More

We saw the sign advertising dinosaur tracks on the highway and decided to stop by. Leona greeted us with a friendly wave. She proceeded to give us an excellent 20 minute tour if the dinosaur tracks. She said she grew up in the area and always comes out and takes notes when researchers from Northern Arizona State come out every... More

This was an unexpected stop for us, and we are so glad we did! The amount of tracks is mind boggling. There are also fossilized dinosaur eggs, and skin imprints. As we pulled up, a woman who runs one of the Navajo jewelry stands greeted us and took us on an approx 1/4 mile hike, showing us many of the... More

Didn't expect to stop but we were very glad we did. It was an amazing experience to see the tracks first hand. Our Navajo guide encouraged us to take photos and took her time to show us a great variety of tracks. As you would expect to pay for any tour, it would be inconsiderate not to give a reasonable...

I'll admit I was skeptical driving up as I am to any roadside attraction, but this was well worth it truly special. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. For the novice traveler: "free" means: give a reasonable donation / tip. Remember, no one is paying them for their time except you.

stop here after seeing a sign on her way through the scenic route to New Mexico and I have to say how pleased I am that we took the time to visit this land. As others have stated, this is not a national Park or anything like that. This is true Native Navajo land that contains dinosaur tracks, fossil imprints... More

I had seen the reviews for this before, but we missed it on our last trip to AZ. These tracks are the real deal; I have seen old issues of Arizona Highways magazine with articles on the tracks from the 1940s. I made a point of going to the tracks this time. It is just off the highway. We we... More

Just a turn off the highway. A guide will walk you out among the dinosaur tracks and give you a quick tour, pointing out the most interesting tracks, bones, and eggs. With every rainfall some things are damaged and new ones are uncovered. Guides work for tips and there are some Navajo jewelry stands. You can touch and even step... More

The sign said it's free but you can leave donation. The fact is the tour guide asked us to pay $5 per person at the end as "donation". I expected donation to be something at free will.
