Long Description:
Located near Black Mesa, these famous dinosaur tracks have been preserved in a sandstone strata next to Carrizo Creek. This dinosaur trackway was originally discovered in the 1980s and contained 47 footprints. Due to erosion, only a third of those tracks are visible today. Two of the tracks in particular are much deeper than the others and have a ridge. It may be that the dinosaur was walking on a mudflat area and slipped, leaving a telltale sign that has lasted for millions of years.

The dinosaur tracks are located on private property, but viewing is allowed during daylight hours. A high clearance vehicle or 4x4 is recommended.
