We drove from Ten Sleep WY to visit this dinosaur tracksite and wound up on a gravel road. The long track was actually enjoyable as the countryside had views and we had joking thought we were lost. Work work was ongoing and a high clearance...More

I was really excited about this, but unfortunately, I couldn't really distinguish the tracks or make heads or tails of what I was looking at. I think it's odd that these tracks are uncovered and open to the elements also. I was disappointed that the...More

This is an amazing place a geologist almost literally stumbled across when out walking between Greybull & Shell. A wash uncovered three-toed dinosaur tracks along a river bed. You can see the ripples in what was once sand, and once you find one of the...More

About 5 miles off of the main road on a gravel, but pretty good track. Very well laid out area, with a boardwalk that leads to the section with the most prints to observe. There are rattlesnakes, scorpions, and spiders in the area so you...More

I enjoyed driving to the tracksite but ... once I got there I really didn't even see the tracks to be honest. You need a lot of imagination to make anything of this.

This tracksite is 5 miles down an unimproved road. We really enjoyed the drive and the visit to the dinosaur tracksite. We saw fossilized seashells in the middle of the Wyoming prairie! So cool.

I have been to this site 3 times. There was a Forest Ranger there the first time to point things out. The second time, I was fortunate that another visitor brought a spray bottle of water to help bring out the dinosaur footprints. The time...More

1/10 of a mile at best. There is a nice gradual ramp that brings you down the where the tracks/imprints are.
