FIRST Saturday DINOTRACKS PUBLIC TOURs
Join us on the first Saturday of each month!
Tours start at 1 pm during the cooler months and 9 am or 10 am during the warmer months
Insights’ tour guides will take you on a 2-mile hike through our 211 acres of fossilized dinosaur tracks and giant fossil beds from the Cretaceous Period. An ancient treasure is hidden in our corner of the vast Chihuahuan Desert. Millennia of geological activity has changed the wet environment to an extreme and arid desert, but we can still see the evidence of ancient dinosaur beach here today. Insights’ knowledgeable tour guides cover a variety of topics associated with our DinoTracks. Please let us know if you would specifically like to learn more about animal tracking, dinosaurs, geology, paleontology, and much more.
Tours usually last about 2.5 hours, so be sure to bring plenty of water, a snack, and sunscreen. As you will be hiking over moderate terrain for about 2-miles, you will need to wear comfortable (tough) closed-toed shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Tour guests must bring their own water. Pack in-Pack out if you plan to bring your own lunch/snacks!
