Tour of the Tilted Rocks Professional Review and Guide

"The Tour of the Tilted Rocks is an excellent introduction to the many facets of Dinosaur National Monument. Many visitors tour the quarry first and then drive this short auto tour. There are interpretive signs and short walks along the way, so you’re not always stuck in a vehicle.

The route has fifteen numbered stops and two short enjoyable hikes at the end. Sights to be seen begin with the Swelter Shelter, an alcove once used by Paleo-Indian and Fremont people. Here you can view both pictographs and petroglyphs made by the Fremont people perhaps 1,000 years ago."
