Explore Path Dinosaurs Walked on Guided El Paso DinoTracks Hike
Attention fellow dino-nerds, Insights has restarted its monthly in-person DinoTracks Tours.
First Saturday DinoTracks tours are public hikes of the dinosaur tracks site near Mt. Cristo Rey led by a trained and knowledgeable Insights tour guide.
Dinosaurs in the Borderland
Dinosaurs used to call what is now Sunland Park, New Mexico home some 80 million to 100 million years ago. You can still see evidence of them today as those giant lizards straight out of the Cretaceous period left behind acres and acres of fossilized dinosaur tracks around the Mount Cristo Rey area.
The prehistoric impressions, including massive track ways where it looks as though a herd of dinosaurs passed through, was discovered by a UTEP geology student in 2002.
DinoTracks Tour Takes You Where Dinosaurs Walked
On the first Saturday of the month, Insights El Paso Science Center tour guides will take you on a 2-and-a-half-hour, 3-mile fun, active, and educational hike along the same path the dinosaurs once walked.
The hikes take place on the first Saturday of every month.
The next scheduled tours are July 1 and August 5, 2023. Both hikes start at 9 a.m. The guided tours are $15 a person. You can find more details and purchase tickets online HERE.
