Copper Ridge Dinosaur Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This short uphill hike takes you to one of Utah’s best dinosaur trackways. The Copper Ridge Dinosaur Trail ascends the slabby western flank of Copper Ridge for 0.15 mile to the Copper Ridge Sauropod Tracksite, one of the most unusual dinosaur sites in the Moab area.
The trail, a couple of miles east of US 191, offers a unique glimpse into the distant past when this area was a vast low-lying landscape of broad rivers, swamps, and dense tropical forests. If you hiked the short Dinosaur Tracks Trail at the Poison Spider Mesa trailhead south of Moab along the Colorado River, then you need to drive north to do this short hike to a better trackway."
