Skyline Drive Trackway Site
Cañon City, Colorado – Point of Geological Interest #F10
Dinosaur tracks along Skyline drive.
At the Skyline Drive Trackway Site, you can see a series of Cretaceous Ankylosaur tracks made by a group of dinosaurs walking side-by-side through mud. The tracks were discovered in 1999. Skyline Drive is a one-way road that is narrow and has precipitous drop-offs and tremendous views — this is not a POGI for the faint of heart!
Interpretive signs are posted.
