Very interesting stop. You should know, though, that you do Not need to pay anyone to guide you around the tracks as they are on public land.They are dilophosaurus tracks,T-Rex was NEVER here, the concretions are NOT eggs...I could go on and on. These folks have no idea what they are talking about but they are friendly enough and just... More

This is an undeveloped but fascinating stop, well worth a visit. The Navajo Indians who act as guides are knowledgeable, polite and charming. They work only on whatever guests decide to pay, and sell jewellery too to help make the site pay it's way. Family friendly, it's difficult to see how this great spot can stay undeveloped for much longer.... More

Had a great tour around the dinosaur track field. Also saw what might be several small meteorite impact craters. My guide Harold was knowledgable and I enjoyed has guided walk around the site in the blisteringly hot sun. One of the best parts of my vacation and definately worth stopping. Harold is also a fine artist too.

We were leery of the homemade "Dinosaur Tracks" signs painted on plywood, and being from the city we expected some kind of shakedown. How wrong we were! This was one of our favorite stops along our Boston-to-Los Angeles road trip. Our Navajo guide, Dale Willie, was enthusiastic, patient and knowledgeable. He welcomed us to take our time and enjoy the... More

I passed the site while driving to the Navajo museum, and wife and children did not want to stop thinking it was a hoax. On the way out I decided to stop anyway, and are we glad we did. Simply amazing to be able to get so close to old traces of dinosaurs, eggs, footprints, etc. Also our guide was... More

We arrived there at 9:30am , location on the map is incorrect, it is 5 miles west of tuba city on road 160, we spend 45 minutes going after the tracks with the local guide explaining us, this attraction is free, but we gave the guide some money, you can also buy some local jewelery, it is way cheaper than...

You only way to see the tracks is to get a guided tour by a native of the area. They walk you around and spray water on the tracks so you can see them better. Beats me if what they say is true as to what kind of dinosaur made the track but its neat to imagine these huge creatures... More

We stopped here on our way to the Grand Canyon and had a great time. It is literally a patch of land with dinosaur footprints and fossils in it. The area is tended by a group from the Navajo tribe and it is against their religion to intentionally dig up bones, so everything on-site has been discovered through natural erosion.... More

We (family of three with a teenage daughter) stopped on a long drive from Moab to Flagstaff, partly because we felt it was time for a break on the journey but also because we were interested in seeing the dinosaur tracks. I don't understand people saying it was a long drive on an unpaved road as it is a very... More
