This place is literally in the middle of nowhere - but a great way to break up a drive from the south rim of the Grand Canyon to Glen Canyon. It's about halfway between the park exit and page, az This stop has only a few hand-painted signs to let you know it's coming. It's on the Navajo reservation and... More

We drove from Mesa just for a day trip and my husband was a little skeptical of the area. The drive up was gorgeous. A couple miles in off the 160 you see a sign that says dinosaur tracks. Seriously right off the road. We pull in and were guided into a parking spot and greeted by a very respectful... More

Dinosaur Tracks is a unique place where bones, skeletons, footprints, and eggs are still in THE SPOT where they left them! No one has excavated them and shipped them to a museum to be on display. They are laying there right where they happened. You can look around at the vast, harsh, desolate, and dead landscape and imagine these creatures... More

We intended to go here and despite the homespun feel to it, felt real awe at what we were seeing. Our native guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and we didn't feel hurried through. She enjoyed our excitement and enthusiasm for what we saw. There is no charge but donations are appreciated. We bought jewellery made from the red jasper, made... More

This is worth your time because you get the inside scoop from the natives who are vending their own wears and guiding your tour. Unlike the "Americanized" painted desert/petrified forest you are free to walk wherever and pick up rocks and keepsakes you find. Oh yeah and the tracks are total eye openers. And don't forget fossilized Dino poop, who... More

I have to be honest...the hand painted, non-professional sign and the set up of homemade and dodgy looking stands made me almost pass this site by. Am I glad that I didn't! As a dinosaur lover, I would have been sorely disappointed. When we pulled in, a man gestured to where we should park and greeted us as we exited... More

We read about the dinosaur tracks online and stopped on our way to Four Corners from the Grand Canyon. We were greeted by a very nice young man, Dale, who explained the the tour was free but they do appreciate tips. We led us around the tracks for about 20 minutes and was very informative. It did seem a bit... More

Always looking for alternate routes and scenic highways we stumbled upon this very interesting attraction. Keep in mind that it is on Native American lands and privately owned within the reservation meaning federal and state dollars are not being spent on the site. Expect a primitive visit of prehistoric river bottom where various dinosaur footprints have been captured for eons!... More

This place is non-tourist and works by donations.. implied and expected so don't be a rube. Great place to walk around and see dino tracks from small to large, and a couple of nests. If you have kids you'll want to make this a stop as there's little to do in any direction for at least 1-2 hours.
