This hike crosses over the Paluxy River and through a bottomland forest before winding uphill through stands of scrubby cedars and a panoramic view of Dinosaur Valley State Park, home to some of the best-preserved dinosaur tracks in the world. There’s also a couple of kitschy dinosaur replicas, created by Sinclair Oil Company for the 1964 World’s Fair, that provide a dino-mite photo opportunity.
