Welcome to! 

Now that the weather is warming up, come see and touch our dinosaur footprints!

Explore our website to see all that Dinosaur Ridge has to offer!

Visit our About Us section to learn about how our Exhibits and trails here at Dinosaur Ridge and at Triceratops Trail were created to help the public explore ancient Colorado and the creatures that once lived here. 

Walk with 90-foot, long-necked giants across a floodplain lined with streams, ponds, and watering holes!  Trace the ripple patterns left by Colorado’s ocean on Morrison’s sandy beaches!  Muck through Golden’s swamp under the shade of palm trees with Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus rex at Triceratops Trail!

Come have an adventure at Dinosaur Ridge!
