  • You can take a minibus for a small fee but we walked. Started from the visitor centre end and not the part opposite Red Rocks. Uphill to start but downhill on the way back. Interesting and easy to see...  more »

  • The people who run this place are very unpleasant and not very helpful (except for the lady running the exhibit). Would not recommend, there are other places Colorado has to offer that are much better.
  • Great experience. You can walk it on your own or pay $10 for the 45 min bus tour. Our bus driver was great and very knowledgeable.
  • Very unique and fun experience for children. Knowledgeable staff.
  • The foot tracks left by a variety of dinosaurs is amazing and the highlight of the tour. At the museum and visitors center you actually get to work with the drill tool bit to try and expose the fossils from the rock - recommended
  • This place seems a bit scammy. We went there because we saw a cool page in a book in our hotel featuring a dinosaur head. The bones here are questionable as to whether they are real bones or fake or someone’s chicken wing scraps. A lot of walking for not a lot to see
