This is a great place to hike and explore in the spring and fall. If you find yourself in the area on a hot, summer day, bring water and mind the sun and altitude. Would agree that the small museum is still enough to hold the interest of most kids and the guide, if you opt for the bus ride, provides additional info. We enjoyed hiking the trail with our older elementary sons but it's nice to have the bus option too.
The dinosaur footprints are definitely the best part and the area offers some examples of Colorado's unique geology. Nice stop paired with the Morrison Natural History Museum.
