Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Dinosaur Ridge Trail, a National Natural Landmark, and the short Triceratops Trail are a must for dinosaur and ancient-life lovers of all ages. Dinosaur Ridge Trail is along West Alameda Parkway (closed to unauthorized vehicles), where the fossil remains of plants, footprints, and bones are impressive. Interpretive signs explain the journey through time presented by the various rocks and remains on the hogback.

Triceratops Trail takes you to preserved remains of times long gone near Fossil Trace Golf Course. Both areas are outdoor natural history museums that provide a fun and educational journey close to home."
