Families with dinosaur enthusiasts (of all ages) will enjoy this interesting short hike to a large boulder with dinosaur tracks above the Colorado River. The Dinosaur Tracks Trail is a short, easy hike to a unique dinosaur trackway on a tilted boulder face above the Colorado River. The site, an open-air museum, offers a unique view into ancient lives that occupied an alien world at this very spot on the planet. Before hiking to the trackway, locate the flat angled rock face that harbors it on the cliff terraces opposite the pit toilet and the trailhead. The obvious boulder is poised on the skyline above a couple cliff bands.
