Know Before You Go
Get a map at the visitor's center and start out on trail three. Follow the signs to the dino tracks. Wear a good pair of hiking shoes/boots and take plenty of water. Also, always stay on the trails, because rattlesnakes do live in this part of Texas. The tracks are just over two miles from the visitor center with an elevation change of about 200 feet. The trail is very rough, mainly consisting of gravel and stone. The trail is open to hiking and bikes. The park rangers recommend allocating four hours round trip for hikers. If traveling with young children, the trail is likely too rough for them to make it all the way there and back.
