The Copper Ridge site features the tracks of a long neck and meat-eating dinosaurs. The preservation of the tracks is nice, and this site is well worth a visit. There are sauropod tracks (probably a Camarasaurus, Apatosaurus or Diplodocus) shows that it is turning as it walks, as well as Allosaurus tracks, all dating back to the Jurassic Period. The BLM has placed interpretive signs in the area, and parking is less than 100 yards from the site.

Worth it if you're excited about the dinosaur tracks (we were) but not otherwise. We were able to bring our dog which was a plus.

Short easy hike with hardly anyone around Some of the tracks are not very convincing. But there are also some that are clearly Dino tracks. Nice views of La Sal mts and surrounding BLM land. Also pretty flowers.

Super easy for the family, my 2 year old was able to do it with ease. The kids loved the different terrain, as well as the dinosaur tracks!

This is a great site to visit with kids. My daughter and some of her friends had a great time checking out the dinosaur tracks, some as large as the kids themselves!
