So glad we stopped to see the dinosaur tracks and fossils!

We spent about 45 minutes here. Locating this place was a challenge: the signage on the highway is handmade and difficult to see. But we're glad we stopped! Our 79-year-old... read more

We spent about 45 minutes here. Locating this place was a challenge: the signage on the highway is handmade and difficult to see. But we're glad we stopped! Our 79-year-old Navajo guide walked us all over the area. She showed us dinosaur tracks, skeletons, fossilized eggs, and more. Fascinating.

About a 40-min drive out the Eastern Entrance to the Grand Canyon. Acres & acres of Dinosaur imprints you can walk around & see. there are Navajo Indians on the site that will give you a free tour. Our 14-yr old was truly amazed to be able to walk out on the field of prints. Many skeletons have been unearthed... More

I had the pleasure of being guided around the site by the nicest lady, Maria. The site is so interesting. There is no charge to see the tracks and no pressure to donated at all, but I felt it was well worth a $15.00 donation. There are also a couple of Native Navajos selling their wares.

It was crazy windy and we did not want to even get out of the car, but one of the guides hanging around for a tip urged us out and he was fantastic. The locals Native Americans handing around the parking lot in hopes of given you a tour for tips were outstanding in their knowledge and guidance. The best... More

The navajo believe in letting nature be nature which means no preservation efforts. Fun to geek on. Wish there was a scientific written guide. Be prepared to tip for the "free" tour (but take the tour as they're hard to find initially).

This was a quick stop that we saw signs for as we were driving. The Navajo was very nice & informative. We enjoyed the tracks & remains but did question the authenticity of some of the tracks. I think most are legitimate, but know that not all those species were present at the same time. Also the size of one... More

I pulled over to see the tracks on my way between Kayenta and Flagstaff, I am so happy I did..great tracks and my guide..a young Navajo teen...was very knowledgeable and invested in showing me all the tracks. I didn't feel pressured to 'make a donation' but he deserved it and I gave him a tip. Only inaccuracy I picked up... More

going west on hwy 160, just past tuba city, you will find this on the right. only a hand printed sign indicates where to turn. you drive up a dirt road to a shack where Navajo guides wait. there are crafts for sale and the guides take turns. there is no legal requirement to pay for a guide, but this...

great 15 minute side tour when visiting grand canyon national park. The dino tracks are really clear to see, and the guides know which dinos layed which tracks. Fun stuff especially for the little ones. Tips are recommended, the guides are unofficial. They are from the Navajo Nation.

My wife and I saw the sign for Dinosaur tracks on highway 89 while on a trip through Arizona. I quickly turned around and went to the site. I couldv'e stayed there all day looking at the tracks, but then again, I'm really fascinated with this stuff. Our guide Orlando was very cool. There is no entrance fee but it... More
