There are really dino tracks- and eggs here. The hand-made sign and tents selling Navajo jewelry might throw you off, but this is actually a really fun stop- especially for kids and dinosaur lovers! You'll get a Navajo guide that carries a water bottle and...More

Not what we expected, but very interesting, guide was interesting and seemed to know what she was talking about. They don't charge for the little tour but expect a donation which we didn't mind at all.

This is worth the stop for something you may hardly ever get the opportunity to see. A guide takes you on a tour (free of charge) pointing out the tracks, eggs, fossilized bones, etc. You may give them a donation if you wish. This is...More

We happened to see a reference on a map we had. Made the quick side trip (5 minutes) off the main road toward Tuba City. You can stop and look with out a Navajo guide, but they approach and ask if you want one. It...More

Don't do it. The land belongs to the Navajo Nation. You don't want to violate their law. You go with a guide so the Navajo can make sure you don't destroy their property. People have defaced their property in the past.
