For what it is, it deserves 5 stars simply for existing. Yes it seems a little sketchy when you get out and a random tour guide comes up and just starts to push you along to the foot steps. But it is such an amazing find to put your hand in a dinosaur track that everything else really shouldn't matter.... More

There is not much to this, but it is an interesting stop if you are on your way to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon... less than 10 miles off the highway. We had a delightful grandmother show us the foot prints and point us toward the good vista points. There is no charge, but tipping the guide is... More

Tuba should invest in exploiting this area. Set up small info boards of what dinosaurs 👣 they are. It would be nice to know a Lil fun facts on it. ..also would be nice if they share Native Mythological stories that Ties in with Dinosaurs.

This site was discovered when the R160 was being constructed.There were hundreds of tracks to see. Our sweet Navajo guide was very entertaining and wet some of the footprints to make them show up better, though they were quite easy to see without. She showed us how the tracks crossed over, what sort of dinosaurs made them and where a... More

We were traveling the 5 big parks in Utah on the way to Grand Canyon, when we started seeing home-made signs for Dinosaur Tracks. Had to stop! Just off the highway. Well worthwhile. John (native Amer) was our guide. Friendly, talkative, helpful, a really nice guy (please say HI for us when you see him). Amazing how the dinosaur tracks... More

I'm not sure what to say here. This site is supposed to be early Jurassic, but they show you what they call a T-Rex track, which would make it late Cretaceous. The timelines don't match up at all. I have researched the early Jurassic and late Triassic and cannot find a Dino with a foot this large. It is impressive.... More

There is no fee for this sight. There is no formal group or organization so first off beware locals claiming to be guides. You are allowed to search for the tracks as you like and at your own pace. They weren't hard to find but have no proper markings. Amazing to see foot prints in the rock. I wouldn't say... More

This was a wonderful stop...you do not have to pay, but I think the guide was a key part of this stop. Take water so you can see the tracks better...I had read that these tracks were not real...but I believe they are and further down our trip we found information in Denver that has the bone retrieved from this...

This place is really cool! I was quite apprehensive about stopping here. It reeked of being a tourist trap. But we took a chance and checked it out. I'm so glad we did. The dinosaur tracks were EVERYWHERE! And you were able to get close to them, touch them, put your foot in them for comparison. It was great for... More
