For Covid-10 information, visit their website. Dinosaur Ridge is getting ready for winter! We will be closing the Discovery Center for the season (November 1-February 28) but opening back up when the temperatures rise in the spring. The new hours at the Main Visitor Center and Gift Shop are 9am-4pm Monday through Sunday with Guided Bus Tours available Friday through Monday. Dinosaur Ridge is a National Natural Landmark just outside suburban Denver. It has been ranked as the top dinosaur track site in the United States, and one of the top such sites in the world. Please plan to visit us and find out how you can help us protect our treasures! Our mission is to educate the public about, and ensure the preservation of, the natural and historic resources of Dinosaur Ridge, Triceratops Trail, and the surrounding areas
