The Copper Ridge site features the tracks of a long neck and meat-eating dinosaurs. The preservation of the tracks is nice, and this site is well worth a visit. There are sauropod tracks (probably a Camarasaurus, Apatosaurus or Diplodocus) shows that it is turning as it walks, as well as Allosaurus tracks, all dating back to the Jurassic Period. The BLM has placed interpretive signs in the area, and parking is less than 100 yards from the site.

This is a great site to visit with kids. My daughter and some of her friends had a great time checking out the dinosaur tracks, some as large as the kids themselves!
