  • Awesome dinosaur tracks! And the view was cool! Great place to take the youngsters and those interested in archeology! A bit of walking, but it was worth it, there's also a tour bus you can take. For ...  more »
  • We visited last week. No admission was required to see the attraction but I'm not sure about the museum. We walked through the whole ridge and were most impressed with the dinosaur footprints. 
  • There are other attractions in the area that I recommend before this one. While the attractions is informative, it is not all that different from museums.

  • 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.
