“Is this the footprint/”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

A bit like the blind leading the blind, but eventually someone found them and we all took photos. We all knew the ideas of 90 degrees from the lighthouse, but still was a bit of a puzzle. Take time to look at the concrete examples near the head of the trail and then you'll know what you are looking for.

“FREE! Have a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The actual dinosaur prints are only visible at very low tides, but there are replicas at the top so you don't have to do the rather difficult walk out on the rocks to have a look. Good footwear essential if you're going to climb down the rocks. Check out the nests on the lighthouse.

“The fosil from the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

the viewing of the lighthouse and seeing the dinosaur footprint was exciting, to say the least. Well worth the effort to see it.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Foot prints are great to see! However be warned that they are located down on the ocean floor at low tide and the climb/walk down is very slippery and is not marked. I saw numerous people fall on the rocks. The road in is an okay gravel road.

“Dinosaur footprints and more!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

See dinosaur footprints up close, without any restrictions or over-regulation as often found at tourist attractions. Some guidance or markings would be nice though.
