Colin Dunn leads a guided hike every third Saturday of the month beginning at 8am at the trailhead. Highly recommended.

I wish I had looked at reviews of this trail before I started out. The trailhead is relatively easy to find, and has some nice information boards there, but the BLM map is really misleading. After a look at the map, and the related mileage...More

We went to the Trackways and walked for over an hour, and regrettably never found any of the tracks, and have been told many were removed to Albuquerque museums for safe keeping- we were advised to visit the Trackways when the Rangers conduct guided tours-...More

The prehistoric trackway can be found by hiking about 2 miles up the Ridgeline Trail and about another mile to the left to the Discovery Site. Lack of information got us halfway up the trail before we turned around, unclear at the time about how...More

Had a great hike here...found fossils and desert wildflowers. Fantastic views. Bring water, as it is isolated and very open. The trail is loose and rocky, but hikeable in tennis shoes.

We've visited a couple of times and really have enjoyed the few hikes this monument offers. My son has riden his bike and during sunset the city looks beautiful as well as the other peaks! It's worth visiting it!

There's not much here. There are some information boards but one is missing. It's probably the one that tells you where to find the dinosaur tracks. You would probably need a guide to find any tracks. The only things we got out of the experience...More

Responded to an ad for a BLM guided hike on a Saturday morning at this site. About 30 people showed up. Collin and his interns were ready to explain this geological site. The total hike was 3 miles with stops for explanation of the fossils...More

Pretty place for a desert walk, but nothing about where tracks were found. In fact nothing at all. Ok, the quail and lizards were nice. Do not make a special trip. Just go the museum in town

I hiked for 3.5 miles here and though the views were amazing, I developed a disdain for the very rocky terrain. It was treacherous footing especially for the descents and there are some steep bits. Overall this was a 3.5 but since I can't do...More
