Although close to St. George, you feel in the middle of nowhere when you visit Warner Valley. This is a dirt road and you may be the only one in the valley so take some extra water and tell someone where you are going in case you have trouble. an easy way to get to the valley is to go through the main street in Washington to 300 East then head south and go around several hills. When the road takes a hard right look for the signs heading to the east and the valley. It will take another 20 minutes to get to the site described here.

Two dinosaurs passed this way, one 20 feet long and weighing 8 to 10 tons while the other was probably 100 pounds and 7-10 feet tall. The tracks were discovered in January of 1982. To get to the tracks, leave Fort Pearce and get back to the graded road. Head east, when the main road takes a hard right the road to the tracks keeps going to the east.
