Nice Point to Point trail. Dinosaur footprints recently found has added to the traffic. Rocky, mild elevations pretty canyon where the footprints were discovered.

Great trail. If you want to get to the top of the cliff where the dinosaur tracks are below, take the overlook trail that branches of the Joe Johnston route. The overlook trail has a beautiful view of the canyons and has some safe areas to sit near the edge of the cliff. Also, if it rained recently, the dinosaur tracks may be underwater and the Joe Johnston route may be impassible unless you want to wade through water. If that's the case, take the overlook trail and you can see the tracks from the cliff's edge and the overlook trail will take you back to the Joe Johnston route on the other side of the flooded area.

It was an easy trail but cost $6 each for us to walk a trail. Trail walking shouldn't cost.

I really loved the dinosaur tracks when you circle around a trail to get an overlook of the creek bed. You will clearly see them from up above and be so happy. On the bottom it's hard to see them if it rained recently. Seriously difficult. But no matter how much rain or slight mud you can see them up above. The trails are great workout too. The distance is about 2 hours of walking. Never really hiking up hills. You do walk over and around trees and roots a little rock areas.

Moderate traffic. Not a lot of vistas. It's mainly used to get to other trails and to look at the Dinosaur footprints.
