  • We enjoyed our driver's local knowledge and passion for the site. The kids really enjoyed it too. The $6 bus tour is worth it, especially if it starts raining, like it did on us, LOL! 
  • We have a 9 and 11 year old. They really enjoyed this. We chose to walk the trail. So neat to learn about and see. 
  • At dinosaur ridge you will see petrified dinosaur bones as well as many dinosaur tracks. There are great hikes, and bike trails. Due to a recent shoulder injury we chose to take the bus ride to multip...  read more »
  • 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.
  • this place is amazing and good place for the kids! The dinosaur prints were very cool! I recommend that you go early in the morning or in fall or spring months because it was way too hot for a June trip. We needed lots of water and there isn't much shade :(
  • When driving across the country and through Colorado, this is a can't miss stop to check out some dino tracks. Well-preserved, easy to see, and doesn't require a huge hike to get to and so it's the perfect trip for even your youngest paleontologists. Would definitely consider getting the guided tour as they will help to give a little more context to what you're seeing, particularly, the view of footprints from below, which took a little bit more technical understanding to appreciate fully.
  • Avoid these place at all cost. No system for bus tours. Waste of time. Staff do not care. Dinosaur Ridge should be taken out of places to visit on guides. Avoid!!!!!!
  • A must see site for paleontology fans! Amazing dinosaur footprints and a travel through time you shouldn't miss. Super knowledgeable guided tour or take a walk on your own.
