  • I had no clue there were dinosaur tracks in New England! It was such a a surprise when planning a road trip that several people would recommend this stop. It's just off the road and once you get down ...  more »
  • Not only is this spot on reservation lands and next to the CT river, but it's TRULY ancient. Can you imagine what it feels like to step on a Dinausaur's footprints so large you could sit on it? An ass...  more »
  • This is a short walk from the parkIng area to the rock bed, worth every step. There are hundreds of dinosaur prints in the rock. We stood there in awe, thinking about how we were looking at something ...  more »

  • Would be nice if the information on the Google page included that it's closed for the winter. It said it was open until 6pm today and we showed up to barricades blocking the pull-out for parking. Was really looking forward to seeing the footprints while we were here from FL. ☹️
  • This is a very authentic experience. Just a little signage. You have to be a good detective to spot the tracks, but that is part of the fun and charm. It would probably be helpful to do a little advanced research to be aware of what to look for. Its not a museum or tourist stop. More like a tiny hike.
  • Can't beat the free admission, and it's the real thing. You can reach out and touch the prints.
  • It is pretty cool that this place is free and that it has dinosaur footprints. I would safely say that the absolute max time to spend here is around 20 minutes.
  • Cool to view footprints from an animal that walked the area 190 million years ago. There isn't alot of excitement while you visit, but it's totally free. Enjoy.
