Places To Go
Uintah County Library, Vernal, UT.
Dinosaur has scenic splendor from one end of the monument to the other, but the monument also preserves a range of human history, including Native American rock art, homesteaders' cabins and an early 20th-century ranch. There is a lifetime's worth of places to explore. Some of these places are easy to access such at the Quarry Exhibit Hall, where you can see the 1500 dinosaur fossils still encased in the rock. Others, like Echo Park, may require the use of a high clearance vehicle. Some may even require an arduous adventure. Whatever you are seeking, Dinosaur offers much to explore.
Check back often, as we will continue to add new pages and places to this section to help you discover the variety of landscapes, history and scenery found at Dinosaur.
