Wear hiking shoes if you want to leave the bus tour and hike around the area. It is beautiful!

Take the tour with TJ and then hike the trails. Make sure you get out of the way of the mountain bikers!

Have your children wear approphiate shoes (not clogs or flip flops) as the bus guide let's them climb up a little hill to touch some of the prints. You can also hike on Dakota Ridge for a nice workout. The gift shop has some very nice things ... a great place to do some Christmas shopping. They had the coolest little sneakers for children with a dinosaur print on the sole ... along with some great books and replica dinosaur's. Also maps where you can do some other exploring. Bring water but they may have some available in the store.

If your kids love dinosaurs (real ones, not pretend) then they will love this. It's smaller than I expected, and the tour isn't grand, but you get to see and touch real dinosaur bones and tracks and that's worth the price of admission right there. And the scenery is outstanding.

From Our Editors

Children run in trails marked by prehistoric footprints, and fingers run across fossils during each visit to Dinosaur Ridge, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of ancient artifacts. Around every corner of the outdoor museum—which rests on land designated as a national natural landmark—bones and impressions protrude from their earthy abodes as evidence of the area's once larger-than-life inhabitants. Paleontologists of all ages can examine curious tracks on surrounding hiking paths, such as Triceratops Trail, or hop on a guided bus tour to examine fossil sites and valleys where brontosauruses used to question the meaning of life.

Lurking inside the visitor center is the Trek Through Time exhibit, where interactive children's games, replica fossils, and massive murals join forces to lead explorers into different prehistoric eras. In addition to its day-to-day operations, Dinosaur Ridge also plays host to various events during the year, including Boy Scout days, birthday parties, and lectures that explain how T. rex stayed humble despite his large stature.
