Channel your inner paleontologist by exploring over 300 dinosaur tracks, bones, and other fossils at Dinosaur Ridge. Some of the world’s best known dinosaur fossils were found here, and this area has been designated a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service. Take a guided shuttle tour (fee) or walk the two self guided trails, Dinosaur Ridge Trail and Triceratops Trail, (free). Along the way, learn more from interpretive signage. If walking, note the high elevation and some steep sections. Bring water and sunscreen. Please respect all fossils and do not collect or disturb any natural features. The indoor hall features fossils, full-size replicas, hands-on exhibits and educational programs.
