This area is all about patterns and color. If you're afraid of heights this might be difficult because you are exploring cliffs and you have to climb and descend steep sections sometimes. It's not technical climbing though.Show more

Length: 3 mi • Est. 1 h 25 m
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.Show more

There is no sign marking the trailhead at Highland Park, but it's easy to find. Leaving Highland Park follow the paved road a short distance northeast until the pavement ends. Pass the large boulders blocking the end of the road. The trail starts just past the cement. After about a half mile, the trail turns into a doubletrack and passes east through a gate heading toward a large water tank. Before you reach the tank, take the old dirt road on your left (south). That road goes a short distance downhill to a large tunnel that takes you under the I-15 freeway. A section of the trail upstream of the tunnel was recently washed away by a flash flood, but will be repaired. For now, simply hike for about a hundred feet up the wash until you hit the trail. Stay left at the first intersection. You'll be rewarded. There's fun short climbing and descending on classic Utah slick rock. Be sure to take time and enjoy the views. This trail ties into the Dino Cliffs trail to the south and Prospector to the north. You can access Church Rocks from trailheads on both of these trails. Show more
