A loop trail slightly longer than a half mile can offer up a lot of learning. Meandering through the Fruita Paleontological Area, this trail features twenty interpretive signs describing dinosaurs and other creatures that roamed the area 150 million years ago. This world-class fossil site contains a prolific record of Jurassic microvertebrates. This area preserves a greater diversity of prehistoric life from the Jurassic Period of 150 million years ago than any other known place on earth. Based on the variety of fossils discovered here, this spot is paleontological nirvana. In fact, one of the most unique fossils ever discovered--the Fruitafossor windscheffeli--wasunearthed here and named after Grand Junction resident Wally Windscheffel in 1998.
