I read about the Mill Canyon Dinosaur Trail here on Tripadvisor before I went to Moab. I'm glad I did because I would not have known about them when I was there. There is NO sign on the main road about the area and, although the road is marked from the highway, it's a dirt road between a railroad crossing.... 更多
A bit of a drive to get there, but we had the whole place to ourselves - during the height of Jeep week. The trail is incredibly well marked and has fun ups and downs without being strenuous. We loved finding the dinosaur bones in the rocks and the shady little creek provided beautiful scenery.
This is a self-guided walking tour through an area where it is easy to see Jurassic dinosaur tracks. You go about 15 miles north from Moab on Highway 191 and turn at the Millcreek sign. There is a parking lot at the dinosaur trail. There are a lot of interpretive signs on the half mile trail - and there are... 更多
I highly recommend this walking trail where you can actually see the dinosaur bones within the rock formations. It is informative and interesting. This would be a great experience for any age, but young people will especially love finding the bones.

Off the road, would have missed this fun excursion but the lady at High Point ATV tours told us about it.

Central and Southern Utah are filled with Dinosaur bones, but most that you see are in museums. On this trail, they are still in the ground, about 12 inches from you. Signs describes some of them; many... 更多
To be honest I'm happy that this isn't advertised widely because it would spoil the pleasure. It is only because it was mentioned on TA that I found it. The road in is not sealed and can be muddy with pot holes however I managed it fine in a AWD. I think in summer there wouldn't be any problems. The... 更多
Stumbled across this place by accident when trying to find a Jeep trail. It is very scenic and interesting. Tucked in an out of the way place, you either have to stumble across it, as we did, or know to go there. Another of those magical, little paces that are all around Moab. Ask for directions at the Visitor Center... 更多
