Guided auto tours are the easiest way to visit Picket Wire Canyonlands and learn about its rich, colorful past. During the tour, knowledgeable guides show visitors difficult to find dinosaur tracks and point out the interesting prehistoric, historic and natural features of the canyons. They will also point out about 250 new tracks that have recently been discovered.
All day tours (8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) are offered on Saturdays in May, June, September and October for a small fee. Due to rough roads, visitors will need their own four-wheel drive vehicle.
