The tracks here are truly amazing. Our Navajo guide was enthusiastic and eager to share the site and stories with us. There is no entry fee though we chose to tip $20. Seeing the tracks takes 10-15 minutes and you are free to explore and photograph. We also purchased several handmade pieces of jewelry of excellent quality for a reasonable price from a Navajo artist who was also at the site. P.S. no rest rooms (but many other places to stop nearby).

A worthwhile visit as we traveled between Page and Grand Canyon Village that was only 5 minutes off our route. We really enjoyed hearing from Jolyn, a Navajo woman whose family lives in this area and was familiar with Samuel P Welles visit to the area in 1938 where he did more study on the formations here. (Look up his name online for more info)
I thought the 20 minute “tour” was worthwhile and fun for our family to see. I recommend tipping $10 to $20 for a guide (really recommend going with one of the ladies who seemed to take more time on the tour). We also bought some jewelry for myself and teen daughters, which was entirely optional.

Stopped here and was immediately approached by local to give us a tour for tips. So we did and tracks were cool. Some of the rocks she advised were Mother Dinosaur this and baby dinosaur that seemed to be a bit of a tale. It lasted about 20 mins or so and gave her $20. She immediately asked for another $20. Anyway I was glad to help out a local but thought $20 for 20 mins was more than fair.

This was definitely worth the trip! I got to fulfill my dream of walking alongside the dinosaurs at this site. Was much more immersive than looking at them in a museum. Definitely recommend this for young kids and adults alike. We had a fantastic guide named Dale who showed us around the dinosaur footprints. I recommend taking the free tours they offer (they give the tours for free but I recommend tipping them around $10-20 cash out of respect for the time and effort). You don’t have to take a tour, but if you don’t you’ll have to wander aimlessly looking for them and might miss some really good finds.

Excellent!! This is something you really should not skip if you are close to the area. It’s only a little over an hour from Flagstaff and then you can go into the east entrance to the Grand Canyon afterwards. It is off the beaten path just a little and the very bumpy road to it is only a short ways off the paved road. Our guide was John. He took us around the area and pointed out the dinosaur tracks, bones, eggs, and even a jellyfish. He was very knowledgeable and super friendly. He seems like an all around great person. When we arrived he and someone with him were the only guides there but more were coming in. They have shacks set up with trinkets and jewelry and it is very reasonably priced! At least Johns shack was and his is the last one in line, farthest away when you’re driving up to it. Do not skip getting a souvenir from there. Seriously cheap! If you have an interest in dinosaurs, and let’s be honest here, who doesn’t, then you need to go. It’s much different walking on the same land dinosaurs have walked than just seeing fossils in a museum.

This was a short stop along hwy 160 in AZ - very remote but neat place. There are no services here, You will drive a short, bumpy dirt road to where a few guides wait. I was hoping just to wander around and look myself but one of the men leaped up to lead us around the sites. It was scorching hot and we wanted to bail on the 'tour' but never got a chance to. Its only around 20 mins but bring water with you if its hot. They work for donations and also sell jewelry at a wooden booth. They work hard at this hustle and I felt bad I couldn't donate more than I did. Still was a neat stop, saw footprints, fossilized eggs and bones, etc. Shout out to our guide "Mike"!

This site is located on the Navajo Reservation. For a donation, you will be escorted and shown the sites. Our guide was young, but very knowledgeable about the fossils and the history of the location. The locals had some hand made items for purchase (of course we couldn't resist). One of the men warned us, as tourists, to be cautious in the area.

This was a PERFECT stop between Sedona and Page. It looks like nothing in the middle of nowhere, but is rich with science. Our guide “Dinosaur Joe” showed us tracks, bones, and eggs. We left with small rocks that were petrified bone and mineral ash. To think this desert was once a swamp… There was absolutely something awe-filling and moving to feel, see, and think about the ancient history of this area. Not to mention this is Navajo land and you are directly supporting Navajo nation. The tour is paid via tip and support through the purchase of souvenirs. We bought an arrowhead made by our guide from a stone from the site.

Super cool for kids!

There are many dinosaur tracks here, very close to the highway and easy to get to. There is no charge to see the tracks, but there are voluntuneer guides who will show you around in exchange for tips. Our guide, Dale Willey, showed us a lot of interesting tracks and a few other things such as what was left of a vandalized egg (big, and infuriating that it was selfishly damaged) and a possible skeleton. We arrived close to sundown, which made it difficult to see the tracks. It would probably be better to be there in the mid-morning or mid-afternoon when the sun is at an angle, instead of parallel to the ground.

Great quick stop just off the highway West of Tuba City, Az. Rough rocky short road to parking. This is reservation land so a native guide will show you around for tips. There is no doubt the tracks are real all along an ancient river bed. Pterodactyl skeleton and T. Rex track take some imagination. Very worth a stop if you love dinosaurs.
