Great new signage make sit easy to understand which bone goes where in the dinosaur. My daughter also loved walking along the creek looking for animals and their tracks in the mud and sand. Great short hike for kids!

Great for kids! They can see the fossils the way they are found in the rocks so they can start looking out for them on other hikes. If you continue south and the far end of the loop, along the river there is lots of room to explore and there are great views to the south into the basin.

Right off the highway, short hike. Very cool seeing the fossils that are so well preserved. Definitely one for the kiddos too.

Very short hike. It was interesting to see the dinosaur fossils. We were glad to see signs that described the fossils because otherwise we wouldn't have known what they were.

Very interesting trail where dinosaur bones are exposed along a creek. Great for kid who like dinosaurs! See Map # 500 - Moab North.
