Mill Canyon Dinosaur Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Discover dinosaur bones and petrified wood on this short interpretive hike in Morrison Formation sandstone above a shallow valley northwest of Moab. The Mill Canyon Dinosaur Trail is like walking through a natural history museum, except all the exhibits are outside. No panes of glass or partitions separate you from experiencing this wonderful outdoor display of dinosaur bones and petrified wood. This unique trail, which offers a look at a lost world filled with extinct creatures, is a hit with anyone who loves dinosaurs. Its short length makes it especially attractive to dinosaur lovers who happen to be kids.The trail explores the Morrison Formation, a widespread rock formation composed of mudstone, siltstone, and sandstone deposited 150 million years ago during the Jurassic Period on broad low-lying plains laced by meandering rivers and covered with dense forests, lakes, and swamps."
