Tuba City Dinosaur Tracks

The tracks are about an hour’s drive north of Flagstaff, located on the north side of 160 about a mile east of 89. While it’s only an hour away from Flagstaff and Tuba City is an actual town, the drive through vast desert lands makes the site feel far removed from civilization. A simple homemade sign saying “Dinosaur Tracks Here” on the side of the road announces the site.

Don’t expect a visitor center or museum here. Instead, expect plywood shelters and friendly Navajo Nation vendors selling turquoise jewelry and Navajo art. They do not charge to view the footprints however a donation or purchase is implied and appreciated.

Tracks, Petrified Skeletal Remains, Petrified Dinosaur Eggs and Dung can be seen here.
