Directions to Dinosaur Ridge See our hours of operation

Welcome to DinoRidge.org! 

The new Dinosaur Ridge Discovery Center is OPEN! Here are the hours. While we will still have our main Visitor Center open its regular hours on the C-470 side of Dinosaur Ridge, the new center has a brand new exhibit and gift shop!
It's located at Red Rocks Entrance 1, the first building on the right. Come see our new Brachiosaurus model! This dinosaur is in the lot near the picnic area, but will have a full exhibit installed in the next month or so. It has been named Brian in honor of our late friend Brian Davidson.

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!
