Dinosaur Valley State Park contains some of the best preserved dinosaur tracks in the world. The dinosaur tracks are located in the riverbed, so please call ahead to check on river conditions. There are two fiberglass models; a 70-foot Apatosaurus and a 45-foot Tyrannosaurus Rex. They were built, under commission of the Sinclair Oil Company, New York World's Fair Dinosaur Exhibit of 1964 - 1965. Other activities include camping, picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, Equestrian use in a separate 100-acre area (no horses furnished), river swimming and fishing, and wildlife observation.

Fun for kids, most of the tracks are in the water though so plan to go when it's warmer. Water is surprisingly clean/clear, suitable for kids to play in without fear that they will grow a third arm or something.

good trail but it is longer than 7.52 miles that the park map says. there is shade a good part of the trail and you do some climbing as well. end of the trail is mostly grassy terrain. make sure to bring a carb snack and plenty of water. my dogs feet pads got sore over the many miles of rocky trails. so, make sure your dog has dog booties.

Beautiful area. The trail is a bit more than the stated 7.1 miles, my watch recorded 7.6. As others mentioned, there is a stream to cross so plan for that. Not sure why others say the trails are not clearly marked, I thought they were well marked with plenty of signs and arrows.
