  • A friend helped us find the visitor center. We got there just as the bus pulled up. We had about 15-20 minutes to use the bathroom and peruse their gift shop. The bus was great and also went slow enou...  more »
  • Thought it would be interesting and cool. Had our daughter and friend with us both of which lost interest pretty quick. There are a few cool facts and sights but not nearly what we had expected. 
  • There is a bus tour, but because of time constraints, we choose to walk it. The trail is an old paved road and goes up hill from the visitors center. Points of interest are clearly marked with informa...  more »
  • Wonderful place to take the dogs or kids for a hike. Very cool geological features and signs that explain what you are looking at. The views from the walk up are amazing, but dress appropriately, because it can get windy up there, and bring good hiking shoes/sneakers. Boots were a mistake!
  • I hiked up and around the hill. The guided tour would have been more informative, but I wanted to get some exercise. Great views of the valley and Red Rocks. The dinosaur bones and footprints ate really cool. The ancient sea floor is amazing.
  • This is one of the coolest places I've ever seen! Dinosaur footprint fossils alongside a mountain, and the tour guides are so knowledgeable, I loved the history and science behind it all- perfect place for the kids. You can also walk the trail for free if you don't want the bus tour, it's about 3 miles round trip. We originally drove by the visitors center and almost turned back because it looked small and we were expecting a huge museum, so glad we stayed!
  • Breath taking views and really great hike. You can take the geologist tour for 6 bucks a person over the age of 3 or you can hike the trail for free. They also have a museum that you can check out for 2 bucks a person over the age of 3.
  • Incredible hiking with some awesome views! Went out expecting to hike for less than an hour and we ended up hiking for almost 3 hours! Went on a sunny day and there were constantly runners/mountain bikers on the trails as well. The only negative I experienced was the availability to find a trail map which we couldn't find online or on location making it hard to plan in advance.
