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

Don't pass up this unique site. Admittedly it looks a little sketchy from the road signs, but it is the real deal. T-Rex tracks along with many other types of dinos, our young guide Tyler knew them all. Amazing. Tyler told us upfront that the tour was free and he worked for tips. He used a bottle of water to...

Near Tuba city in Arizona, signposted on the main highway between Tuba and Cameron. We saw a huge signpost and pulled in. A local Navajo offered to guide us. There are dino footprints, dino eggs, a dino claw and a T Rex footprint which is so large you realise that a human would be a minor snack.... Worth going if... More

Great to see dino tracks, tour was awesome. Anyone going through there,definitely need to stop and see this. The family or people who are running this place needs to fight to keep this place their own. We liked the baby dinosaur tracks. Mr & Mrs Nelson Bia

Decided to pull in on our way to the Grand Canyon. This was a memorable experience. The tracks are amazing. Stepping on a truly untouched piece of land where evidence of roaming dinosaurs still exist was fascinating!
