West of Denver, just past the first hogback of the Rocky Mountain Foothills, is “Dinosaur Ridge.” An exposed slab of sedimentary rock, tilted up prit near 90 degrees, is liberally covered with dinoaur footprints.

In this panorama, the main display is visible about 3/8 of the way across from the left.

Used to be, back when I lived in the area (more’n a decade ago), you could drive right on up the road and take a look. Now the road is blocked off with gates. You can walk up it or bike up it, but no cars. Kind of a pain in the keister.
