This is an interesting stop about a 10 minute drive off Highway 89 on your way to/from the Grand Canyon. It's well signposted and you will find yourself in a parking lot next to some huts selling souvenirs and an apparently empty stretch of desert. As the local guides will quickly point out, the dinosaur tracks start from right next... More

No charge for entry but local guides work for tips. Our guide was helpful and informative. The whole tour lasts about 15 minutes. There are vendors at the stop if you are looking for souvenirs.

This is a fun short side trip. Located on tribal land and guided by locals this low key place is welcoming and dynamic. Your guide is whomever is around, we had "John" and he was so enthusiastic about the treasures on this land, you got a thrill just seeing how excited he was. He recalled the many ways this area...

Uhu...dinosaur tracks as if they were there yesterday..Come on people, the dinosaurs lived hundreds of thousand years ago, and the tracks looked almost fresh! Am I the only one who has strong reservations?? I don't believe a word of it, and furthermore, if the artifacts were indeed so good preserved, wouldn't the place be overrun by all kinds of scientists??... More

This proved defiantly worthy of stopping for our family during our cross country trip. The kids loved it and the adults liked it too. It didn't cost us anything (except tips for the people who gave us a tour of the grounds and the Native American artwork we picked up). The kids really loved seeing the dinosaur tracks and fossils.... More

I love roadside attractions and quick stops on road trips! I saw the sign and thought, Why not?!" SO glad I did. It is very informal. You get out and one of the natives will come over to you and show you around and point out the foot prints and other fossils. We have a well-behaved dog who followed us... More

From the road, the site does not look like much. But when you get out of your car you step millions of years back in time. Local Navajo are eager to show you around and proves quite knowledgeable.

We spotted this as we were passing by and stopped with the kids. Mike was our guide, and was brilliant. The kids were enthralled by the experience and took loads of photos etc. It took about 20 - 30 minutes but was worth it, and we tipped accordingly.

We went 3 July 2015. No bathrooms and no water and open desert no shade. It is free but the guides take donations/tips. We were on our way to Four Corners and saw a sign for Dino Tracks. We were coming from Flagstaff going to Four Corners. It is before you get to Tuba City. We stopped on the way... More
