Centrosaurus Quarry Hike

Hike through rugged (dry) streambeds and over sandstone and mudstone ridges to reach a bonebed that contains the remains of hundreds of horned dinosaurs! The Centrosaurus Quarry Hike is your best opportunity to see the unequalled concentration of dinosaur fossils that makes Dinosaur Provincial Park world famous. This former dig site is one of many horned dinosaur bonebeds found in this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Alternate Program: In the event of rain, wet conditions, unsafe road conditions, or other conditions that threaten the safety and comfort of participants, programs may be cancelled or replaced with alternate programs at the regular ticket price. Content of alternate program is the same or similar and is a great opportunity to learn about and see fossils with a park guide. Refunds are available if visitors choose not to participate in the alternate program.
