We visited the tracks back in 1997 as part of our US driving holiday , on arrival we thought it was abandoned turned out the local Indian guides were sheltering in these ramshackle tin sheds from the early morning wind . We were greeted by a young Navajo man named David , he kindly guided us around the site pointing... More

I was driving by and saw the advertisement for the dinosaur tracks. It really cool to see the dinosaur tracks set in stone. There are big ones and little ones. There are even dinosaur eggs. It is free but you should give your tour guide a tip.

A great afternoon walking around the plateau with our guide Gary. Showed us tracks and reptile eggs. Talked about the natural history of the area. Shopped at the jewelry booth. The woman there told us more about the area and showed us different rock samples that had been found there.

I heard of this place before I was headed to the Grand Canyon. I didn't think I'd pass by it but I did and was pleasantly surprised. As past reviewed have stated the tracks are real but there no real eggs. Which the guide does say that. There are some kind of reptile birds eggs are some sort but they... More

I thought it would be a tourist trap bot we loved it. Our guide, Wanda, was really nice, she walked us thru the field where dinosaurs used to roam. It was really exciting to see their tracks and bones, I felt like a kid. Make sure you stop by!

Isabella was our guide and the sweetest tour guide in Arizona! She was great! If you are passing through or staying the night in Tuba City, visit the Dino Tracks site! How often do you come across, a section of land that has multiple dinosaur tracks that you can walk next to. The Dino Tracks is just out of town,... More

The dinosaur tracks here are real, but the rest of the "information" you'll get from your tour guide is fantasy. There are no bones, eggs, fossilized poop, or "dinosaur blood" (it's red jasper) here. Source: I visited this location with my geology class. Our professor is a paleontologist. For him, it's worth the visit for the tracks. We were respectful... More

Doesn't look like much from the highway, but you will be blown away if you stop. A local Navajo guide shows you around for a donation. The trackways are spread across a compact site which you can see in under an hour.

Found this attraction on Tripadvisor and gave it a try. I was a little concerned when we came upon the sign because it didn't look like much. Boy was I wrong! Down the road are some old wooden stands and we were greeted by a native women. She said that there was no change but a $10 donation is suggested.... More
