Warner Valley Dinosaur Tracks Site

When I was a kid, I thought that going to see these dinosaur tracks was pretty amazing! It made my imagination go wild and was one of my most memorable experiences from my child-hood. As fate would have it, the very same day that my sister and I took my girls to go see them, the movie The Good Dinosaur was playing at the local Theater. It rounded out our serendipitous dinosaur-themed day quite nicely.


The site now has signs and a "protect from the elements" barrier, both of which were not there when I was a kid.



I was more than a little disappointed to see the current state of the actual track marks. You can hardly see them and I remember being able to clearly see them as a kid. I'm sure it's half elements and half people being disrespectful when they are there...and maybe a dash of things being remembered even better than they actually were...



Since it's a free activity and only takes a few minutes of hiking, it's pretty family-friendly and still worth going out to see. Especially if you have any kids that are in love with Dinosaurs!
