This place makes science real for kids. If you go to the Grand Canyon go out the back way (EAST) and head up a bit to just outside Tuba city. Can be done in one day from Flagstaff... read more

It is wonderful to be able to walk right up to see diplosaurus trakcks. There is no fee. However, there are people there who choose to offer themselves as guides but with an understanding that you will tip them $20 or $25. We politely but firmly declined the tall thin young man who offered. We walked around for a few... More

I'm a big fan of all things dinosaur so I knew I had to go see the dinosaur tracks while I was in Arizona. To make the trip from Flagstaff worth it, I also hit up Coal Mine Canyon which is also near Tuba City. I'd recommend that plan to anyone. The dinosaur tracks have a big sign telling you... More

We stopped by this attraction on our way to Page, AZ and we were so glad we did. As these are on Navajo lands, you have to have an escort to show you them, so we had Marie show us around, give us info, and it was super interesting. I have seen other dinosaur tracks before and am always amazed... More

Native Americans are there to give you a quiet tour. There are greatly detailed tracks of dinosaurs. T-rex and raptors. Petrifoed dinosaur poop! Guides sell some lovely native made jewelry. Worth a look see!

People come from around the world to see this fantastic phenomena. Long ago the area around Tuba City was a swamp. The dinosaurs roamed the area until something catastrophic occurred one day and the mud was turned to limestone in an instant. The tracks of these Jurassic creatures are clearly visible and until recently, there were also dinosaur carcasses laying... More

Great spot to stop and see REAL dinosaur tracks and other fossil evidence of them. We were not sure if this was just a roadside gimmick or not as the signs leading up to it were handmade signs. However, you have to realize that this land is owned by Native Americans and not the government. It is just an incredible... More

You can actually walk where the dinosaurs walked! The guide was friendly and informative plus she let us bring our dog on the walk. There are lots of tracks from different types of dinos that are clearly visible. There is also a stand where you can buy some native jewlery. All they ask for is a donation - what a... More

I almost did! The outward appearance of this roadside attraction is not impressive in the least. But the experience is not to be missed! This is tribal land and Native American locals serve as guides. Cost is free but donations are appreciated or take time to look at their jewelry. Definitly glad we stopped!

I loved this place. Loved it. It was a dream come true. There you are, in the middle of nowhere, and vast planes of stone festooned with dinosaur tracks. All kinds of them! You can actually step on them! What little or big little kid wouldn't love this??? So why aren't there huge signs pointing travelers this way? Why is... More
