Tour Descriptions:

Summer tours are offered to two sites via hiking trails: the Cabin Pool-Flatbed Creek Dinosaur Tracks and the Wolverine River Dinosaur Tracks Lantern Tour.

Due to COVID-19, all tours must be booked in advance and are available on a first come first served basis. Tours will be limited to participants from a single household. We will not be offering tours to schools, clubs, or other large groups this summer. Book online by clicking on the button at the bottom of this page. If a preferred time is not available, please call, we occasionally have cancellations that are not always reflected on the calendar.

The Cabin Pool Dinosaur Tracks Tour begins with a short hike to Flatbed Creek  where you'll see dozens of dinosaur footprints close to the original ankylosaur trackway discovery. Departure times are  10 am and 1 pm.

The Wolverine River Dinosaur Tracks Lantern Tour is a unique science tourism experience! Visitors are guided to see the shallow dinosaur tracks at night via lantern light, which casts dramatic shadows to make the dinosaur tracks POP. The tour departs the museum at 8 pm Thursday to Monday, July 8th - August 28th. This is a mandatory hardhat tour (supplied and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each use), and is not recommended for children under six years of age.

Know Before You Go:

  • All tours must be booked in advance.
  • Tours start/conclude at the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery (255 Murray Drive).
  • Cabin Pool-Flatbed Dinosaur Tracks: approximately 2 hours (2 km round trip)
  • Wolverine River Dinosaur Tracks: approximately 2 hours (1.5 km round trip)
  • Own transportation to and from the track sites is required.
  • Contact information & photo id required before tour commences.
  • Trails are steep in places! Be sure to hike at a comfortable pace!
  • Weather conditions can change quickly, so come prepared to be outside for two hours.
  • Wear comfortable hiking shoes. Closed-toe shoes are recommended.
  • Tours are weather dependent: rain makes the trails harder to walk on and can flood creeks and rivers next to the tracks, and extreme high temperatures increases the risk of heat-related illnesses.
  • For the safety and enjoyment of everyone using the trails, please leave your pets at home.
