Walk in the footsteps of giants—literally. The enormous prints etched along the ridge were made by migrating dinosaurs millions of years ago. Plants native to Colorado like aster and sage sprout through the rock's cracks, lacing the ridge with yellow and white flowers. Follow the tracks all the way to the peak for one of the best views in the state.
