This is a short walk from the parkIng area to the rock bed, worth every step. There are hundreds of dinosaur prints in the rock. We stood there in awe, thinking about how we were looking at something that was created so very long ago.

This is a free, very small park in Boylston but worth the visit. I took 2 of my grandsons who really enjoyed finding the dino tracks. The larger tracks are easy to spot but I would have to be better trained to find all of...More

This is a great stop for families with amateur sleuths. There are no guides, no displays, no diagrams or exhibits. Just a huge slab of rock with hundreds of dinosaur footprints etched into its surface. Some are obvious with sharp edges and deep bottoms. Others...More

Peaceful area to be by the river. The historical part is ok. Good stopping point on RT5. I've heard some rumors about car break ins but haven't seen anything personally.

We were in Holyoke for a wedding and decided to do a quick stop and see the dinosaur footprints. The footprints are about a 400 ft walk from the highway. The Connecticut River is right there which is very pretty. You have to look hard...More
