The Centrosaurus Quarry Hike is your best opportunity to see the unequalled concentration of dinosaur fossils that makes Dinosaur Provincial Park world famous. You will journey through rugged streambeds and over sandstone ridges to reach a former dig site, known as a bonebed, that contains the remains of hundreds of horned dinosaurs! As you investigate the clues these fossils provide, you will be challenged to come up with your own theory to explain their mass death.


Be prepared for your hike: for your safety and comfort please bring water, sunscreen, hat and insect repellent. Note footwear restriction on all hikes: participants must wear sturdy closed toe and closed heel footwear; NO sandals or flip-flops allowed on hikes! Also note age restrictions for this hike. No toddlers or "babes in arms/carriers" for safety reasons.
