Inscription.
Welcome to Copper Ridge. Here, you can see the tracks of two different dinosaurs. The larger were probably made by an Allosaurus, while the smaller three toed tracks were made by one of a number of smaller bipedal carnivorous spedies.
 
Location. 38° 49.9′ N, 109° 45.723′ W. Marker is near Crescent City, Utah, in Grand County. Touch for map.
Located and maintained by BLM. The turnoff is to the east off Hwy. 191 at: N 38 49.493 W 109 46.886. The sign is not visible from the highway. Cross a cattle guard and railroad tracks and then you'll see the first BLM sign. From there on the road is well marked. The road winds around for 2 miles with the last 0.5 miles on cobblestones. We made it in our low-clearance Ford Fusion without a problem. I recommend delaying your trip if the road is wet and muddy. Marker is in this post office area: Moab UT 84532, United States of America.
