Dinosaur Valley State Park Three different types of dinosaur tracks were left on the shores of ancient Cretaceous seas about 105 million years ago. They hardened into limestone. Footprints of the Brontosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex and a type of reptile are now visible because the Paluxy River eroded away all overlayers, exposing the tracks below. These tracks can be seen in the river bottom except after a heavy rainfall. In addition, two life-sized replicas of Brontosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex were donated to the park and give awesome reminders of the dinosaurs' size. Paluxy River runs through heavily wooded state park with overnight camping and day use. Wade, catch minnows & tadpoles, enjoy nature & hiking trails, plus view dinosaur replicas and tracks. Wear old tennis shoes for wading and crossing river on normally slippery rocks.
