Dinosaur National Monument is situated both in Colorado and Utah. Each condition provides an opportunity to visit very distinctive regions of the monument. The east side from the monument situated in Colorado provides use of deep canyons across the Eco-friendly and Yampa rivers. Dramatic sights can be found across the Harpers Corner Road. Dinosaur fossils aren't visible within the Colorado area of the monument - only around the Utah side. The Canyon Customer Center, that is open from late spring through early fall, is situated near U.S. Highway 40, two miles east of Dinosaur, CO.
Free airline side from the monument situated in Utah features the planet-famous dinosaur quarry where site visitors can easily see over 1, 500 fossils still baked into the high cliff face. The Dinosaur Quarry Exhibit Hall and Quarry Customer Center, one-half mile in the Quarry, are open all year round. From U.S. Highway 40 in Jensen, Utah, take Utah Highway 149 north towards the monument. Throughout the summer time, shuttle buses take site visitors in the customer center towards the Quarry Exhibit Hall to determine the dinosaur fossils. Between October and April, rangers lead site visitors to the Quarry by vehicle caravans.
