Anti climactic. Just a dusty hill where they excavated some dinosaur bones in the early 1900's. I would not do again. I guess it's fine if you just want to get out of the car to stretch your legs.

This site is enroute to the north entry into the Colorado National Monument. It is a former archaeological dig. Simple loop. I would not do again, just to minor and little to offer.
