Fossil Point trailhead

Park at the base of the red and purple slopes of the Morrison Formation. The boulders eroding out of the stream channel sandstone have dozens of examples of fossilized dinosaur bone. Social trails will help visitors find many of them. A protected resource, dinosaur bones are awesome to see and touch but illegal to take. Take pictures of smiling children happy to be touching real dinosaur bone instead.
