Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Highway

Rugged western culture, great wildlife viewing? Surrounded by scenic beauty ? Over 480 miles on the Dinosaur Diamond Scenic and Historic Byway takes you through the region of the United States with the highest concentration of dinosaur fossils found anywhere in the world. Each of the four corners of the diamond shaped route is anchored by a world-class museum featuring dinosaur bones, fossils and lore. In between, there are trackways, quarries, and hillsides where dinosaurs walked the earth millions of years ago. Yet, Dinosaur Diamond is not just about dinosaurs. There are three more stories – and astounding scenic views. The ancient Native Americans tribes that lived here millenniums ago left behind enough rock art that you can travel the entire route of the Byway to marvel at these locations. Pioneers settled the area in the late 1800s, in towns that are now carefully preserved. Some of America’s most dramatic natural wonders such as Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park for starters, add especially dramatic irreplaceable natural beauty to the experience.
