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

Had a great tour around the dinosaur track field. Also saw what might be several small meteorite impact craters. My guide Harold was knowledgable and I enjoyed has guided walk around the site in the blisteringly hot sun. One of the best parts of my vacation and definately worth stopping. Harold is also a fine artist too.

We were leery of the homemade "Dinosaur Tracks" signs painted on plywood, and being from the city we expected some kind of shakedown. How wrong we were! This was one of our favorite stops along our Boston-to-Los Angeles road trip. Our Navajo guide, Dale Willie, was enthusiastic, patient and knowledgeable. He welcomed us to take our time and enjoy the... More

I passed the site while driving to the Navajo museum, and wife and children did not want to stop thinking it was a hoax. On the way out I decided to stop anyway, and are we glad we did. Simply amazing to be able to get so close to old traces of dinosaurs, eggs, footprints, etc. Also our guide was... More
