Great trail and was easier than the others in the park for the kids. It was a little crowded but allowed for some off trail rock exploring.

This was a great little trail. The scenery was stunning, and the river was high and clear. The problem with the trail is the last portion is un-mowed!! We had to walk with 11 kids through grass, weeds and flowers for a good distance! TERRIBLE! We got ants and rashes... If you want to take this trail, check with the park ranger and see if it is being maintained!

You cannot go wrong with Dinosaur Valley State Park! Lots of limestone, water, and trails with dinosaur fossil footprints in the rock. Cross over the river for more challenging hikes and rocky, drier terrain.

This was a great trail for me and my five year old. We were able to reach in from our drive-in campsite. We first started by wading the river along the trail route which was a blast. When we got to a point to where the river was too deep for us, we climbed up to the main trail through the river bank. Part of the trail is paved and some parts are dirt. From the campsite, it led us right to the Main Dinosaur Track site.
