Directions • From Hurricane, take South Airport Road to the south end of town, where the road makes a sharp right turn. Stay on the main road as it bends south again and continues for about 6.5 miles to a fork in the road. Take the west fork and continue 2.8 miles to the southwest, to a junction with a westbound road. Take that road as it winds west for about 3.2 miles and turns sharply north. About 0.6 miles after the road turns north, there is a junction with a sign to the dinosaur tracks. Follow the sign onto the east road, which continues about a half-mile east and then a half-mile north to a parking lot and trailhead. The roads were fine for a passenger car in dry condition, but never underestimate the power of a late summer storm to wreak havoc on southern Utah's roads.
Hike • The hike is only a quarter-mile one-way, heading north and then east. A metal bar protects the dinosaur tracks from water, and a sign at the site shows a map of the tracks. Some of them are large about a foot long and others are smaller. Children of all ages will have fun searching for tracks in the rock and imagining the 8-foot-tall predators that left them. You can continue exploring down the drainage a bit or return to the car.
