it is amazing to see the dinosaur tracks and definitely worth a visit. But the guides keep repeating the same mis-information, I liked our guide and gave him a tip for bringing us to some of the best fossils and footprints, but was embarrassed for him when rattled off the same misinformation I had read about online. Having read about... More

Our family (includes 3 kids 4, 10, and 13) found this to be one of the most memorable parts of our trip out west. We all loved viewing the actual dinosaur tracks belonging to velociraptors and dilophosaurus. Our Navajo guide, Lorenzo, took us out even further to view meteor craters. The kids found pieced of dinosaur bones, petrified wood, lava... More

The dinasaur tracks were cool to see, but the people taking you to see them could do with chilling out a little. It was okay, but there were other things in the area we enjoyed considerably more.

A flag and a hand painted sign on route 160 four miles from Tuba City belies the fascinating dinosaur tracks in this beautiful desert landscape. It is free to visit but they ask for a contribution. It is well worth it. The guide showed us tracks and dinosaur bones and provided a fascinating insight into how they came about. It... More

The footprints are excellent and our guide John was so friendly. I really enjoyed this and would recommend anyone who is in the area to stop by and check it out.

Super awesome! We arrived late in the day and Harrold was gem! The tour was amazing! All he asked for was a donation at the end of our tour. Well worth the stop, highly suggest!

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
