Dinosaur Hill Trailhead

A mildly strenuous hike to the overlook provides panoramic views of the Grand Valley and the Colorado River. There are picnic sites and a large parking area for RVs. There are several interpretive signs along the trail about dinosaur fossils that have been discovered here. A giant plant-eating dinosaur, known as the Brontosaurus, was recovered here in 1901. This was one of the most complete specimens found to date. You can learn how this dinosaur was recovered and view the quarry site and bone reproductions during your visit. Most of this one-mile trail has been designed to include opportunities for hikers with visual impairments through tactile signs and a guide system.
