Turnage Patton Trail

Turnage Patton Trail


Photo by Aaron Judkins-Turnage-Patton TrailThe upper portion of the Turnage Patton Trail was originally discovered in 1971 by the late Mike Turnage. He was able to place his feet in over 100 of the dinosaur footprints while walking in chest-deep water. The continuing trail was never seen by human eyes until Don Patton and his crew pumped the area dry and began the current exposure of the tracks in the year 2000.

The Creation Evidence team continued the exposure of the trackway, and extended it to its current length. As academic sponsor of the extension of the trail, the Creation Evidence Museum has named it the Turnage-Patton Trail.


Drawing of TrackwayThe "Turnage-Patton Trail" measures 527 feet in length and consists of 157 total tracks. The average depths of the tracks are 6 inches. The average length is 15 inches. One hundred thirty six continuous tracks are disrupted by an area of extreme erosion measuring approximately 56 feet. These 136 tracks, according to Martin Lockley, Ph.D., renowned ichnologist and professor for the University of Colorado at Denver, on November 6, 2000, in phone conversation to the author, agreed that this trail is the single longest contiguous dinosaur track way existing on the North American Continent! Amazing! Other track ways were discovered in the immediate area as well. One particular track way that intersected the main trail consisted of 21 tracks that are "pigeon-toed" in track rotation and are very well preserved showing incredible claw markings.
