Warner Valley Dinosaur Trackways
What To See and Do: At the Warner Valley Dinosaur Trackways locality you can see 161 individual footprints and 23 trackways. The trackways at this locality include Grallator footprints (attributed to coelophysid dinosaurs such as Coelophysis) and Eubrontes footprints, which are likely produced by a Dilophosaurus-sized theropod. This locality provides an excellent opportunity to see where dinosaurs walked in the early Jurassic period. A short trail leads to the trackways and there is an information sign for visitors to read.
How To Get There: Warner Valley Dinosaur Trackways is located just southwest of St. George, Utah. The dirt road leading to the dinosaur trackways also takes the traveler to the historic site of Fort Pearce. Depart St. George south on River Road to the Virgin River Bridge. Cross the bridge and turn left on 1450 South. Continue on main road and keep bearing to the east through several 90 degree left and right turns until you come to a large two-story farm house on the west side of road as you are traveling south. Turn left (east) on dirt road at the Fort Pearce sign and continue 5.6 miles to a road that branches right along a small wash to the Fort Pearce parking lot. Dinosaur tracks are 2.1 miles farther down main road that has a sign directing you to the parking area.
