The upper portion of the 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.
The trackway consist of 136 continuous dinosaur footprints, is interrupted by approximately 56 feet of river erosion, then continues with 21 additional footprints.
