The trail is primarily a single track, dirt and sandy trail with some slickrock areas. It changes to a solid trail that leads right down to the dinosaur tracks. As you bottom out on the trail you will see a slate rock surface in part of the stream bed to the left of the trail. In the hardened sedimentary rock you can find 17 well preserved dino tracks. . The trail is well-marked with trail signs and cairns but there are a couple of areas where you need to pay close attention to the trail. The trail provides nice views of the red-rock “Dino” cliffs, and there are dinosaur footprints in the first wash about 200 yards from the start of the trail at the west end.
