Took our water-loving GSD for a hike here. Lots of opportunity to wade in the river, which was a great way to cool off. Bring towels and shoes that will handle slippery rocks. Wish that the trail maps were a little more straightforward. The dino tracks are super cool and easy to find and see. Because the park is so family-friendly, it does tend to get pretty crowded.

The review is specifically for the trail to The Lookout. It is difficult, a short trail but quite a change in elevation. Parking is the next entrance/ lot just past the picnic/restrooms section, it is the main Dinosaur Tracks area #2 I think. It starts across the river. You will get wet, try about 20ft downstream barefoot if the big rocks are too slick for you.

Love the view. There are some awesome trails that will have really beautiful overlooks and nice to take a break and enjoy the view and sound of the Paluxy River.

My family loved crossing the river! This has been one of the best hikes in Texas for us. The line to get in the park went quickly and the trails were all clearly marked.
