Dinosaur Ridge Audio Tour

Travel back 100 million to 150 million years in time to learn about the fascinating lives and deaths of dinosaurs through their ancient environments, tracks and fossils.

This facinating tour is narrated by Dinosaur Ridge Education Programs Director and dinosaur expert Erin LaCount (and her husband Brian LaCount), and provides detailed interpretation of the following stops as you walk or bike along the 1.1 mile Dinosaur Ridge paved trail. 

We recommend that each member in your party download the tour to their own device for a more individual self-paced tour experience. This audio tour is ordered from East to West, starting at the East Gate Kiosk near the Dinosaur Ridge Main Visitor Center (see map below).  However, it can also be walked from West to East from the West gate near the Dinosaur Ridge Discovery Center off of Rt 93 near Red Rocks. Parking is available along Alameda Parkway or limited parking spaces at each gate.

Note: Be prepared to walk 2.5 miles round-trip with an uphill climb for half of your journey. Please visit our Visitor Center for snacks and bathroom facilities.
