Dinosaur Ridge

Location & Contact Information


*Temporarily closed Dinosaur Ridge in Golden, Colorado is a world-renowned geological and paleontological outdoor museum. It contains more than 300 Iguanodon-like dinosaur tracks that were discovered in 1937 when Alameda Parkway was being constructed over the Ridge.  You can follow a self-guided trail of the ridge with 16 interpretive signs, or take a guided tour (with reservations only).  Dinosaur Discovery Days are free outdoor events hosted by Dinosaur Ridge at the Main Visitor Center Complex and along the Ridge Trail on the second Saturday of the month between May and October. Visitors can hike at their own pace or take the shuttle bus for a small fee on these special days. Please call 303-697-3466 for more information.
