The Moccasin Mountain Dinosaur Tracksite gives you vast views of the Kaibab Indian Reservation and the beautiful sandstone cliffs that surround the area. There are hundreds of tracks at this site with at least six different types of footprints preserved in the colorful sandstone. This site contains one of the highest diversity of fossil vertebrate tracks for the Early Jurassic time period in North America. You will find three informational panels near the parking area for this site. They provide information on the types of animals that made the tracks, how many tracks there are, as well as a brief history of the area. The Moccasin Mountain Dinosaur Tracksite is open to foot traffic only and is 0.5 miles round trip. Bicycles and motorized vehicles are not allowed. Dogs are welcome, but dog poop must be carried out. Disposal bags and a trash can are located at the trailhead.
