Highlight: Dinosaur Tracks
Located within the Warner Valley area of St. George, Utah, this preservation site is popular with year-round visitors for its easy access to an abundance of prehistoric dinosaur tracks. The trail leads to a parking area for the hiking trail that's about a 1/4 mile over small rolling hills. There are currently over 400 dinosaur footprints that can be found at the site. The quantity of exposed tracks varies on the amount of sand that's covering portions of the site. Some of the tracks are well preserved, displaying toe pads and claw marks. The larger tracks are from Eubrontes and the smaller tracks are from the Grallator. Keep in mind, it's impossible to know for certain which dinosaurs made these tracks. The terms Eubrontes and Grallator are groups of dinosaurs categorized together from their assumed characteristics based on their fossilized footprints. The tracks are from the lower Jurassic age, approximately 190 million years old. The impressions are in rock that's comprised of fine-grained reddish-brown and white sandstone.
