If you have young children this is a must go to place. Let your young children walk in the river, water is only up to ankles, to see the dinosaur foot prints. What a fun time watching a child step in and discover real foot prints made by dinosaurs so long ago!

We had a great time here & at Big Rocks Park. The river walk will take you there. Beautiful, well maintained area.

So peaceful and serene. Nature's scenery at it's wonderfully best and you can't ask for anything less. There's just something about watching and listening to the water flow that makes your stress just melt away.

The Paluxy goes up and down but it's especially pretty going through the little town of Glen Rose. We've spent many an hour in a tube or canoe on this river.

We walked along the river from Big Rocks Park. It has a nice trail on one side of the river that leads up to Paluxy Heritage Park. There were a few people we saw fishing along the trail. I think that there is also a part of the river where you can actually inner tube, but for this time of... More

This paved walking trail is very nice, but there is no shade. Be sure to wear a hat or bring an umbrella. The trail hugs the river for entire distance between the 2 parks. We were there in late April after several rainstorms, so we did not notice the odors mentioned in some of the other reviews. It looks like... More
