Hiking Trails Along Cub Creek Road

On the Utah side of the park, several trails of various lengths allow visitors to explore the scenery, geology, plant and animal life found within Dinosaur National Monument. The Fossil Discovery Trail even provides the chance to discover fossils "in the wild" just as Earl Douglass or other paleontologists may have in the past.

Do you know the difference between a petroglyph (pictured here) and a pictograph? Petroglyphs are images pecked into rock while pictographs are painted images. Dinosaur National Monument preserves both forms of Native American rock art.
