Recommended Users: Hikers. Singletrack trail. 0.16 miles in length. Difficulty: Moderate. The Silver Reef Trail leads to a lookout of the Silver Reef. Not just another pretty red rock face, the Silver Reef was mined for its deposits of silver (the only know silver ore deposits in a sandstone formation in the world). This trail also passes by well-preserved Eubrontes, Kanyentapus, and Grallator dinosaur tracks, which are millions of years old. The largest track site (reached by hiking a signed spur trail off the main trail) is interpreted; other locations are identified by markers with a dinosaur footprint. At the end of the main trail there is a lookout that offers an outstanding view of the surrounding area.
