The Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry
The quarry is located 30 miles south of Price, Utah, at the end of a graded road. Look for the "dinosaur" signs at road intersections. Room-size boulders scattered about the area create a unique setting for the exhibit buildings, picnic facilities, and the self-guided Rock Walk Nature Trail.
All of the funds collected stay right at the site and are used for operations and improvements.

San Rafael Swell Mountain Bike Festivals
The San Rafael Swell Mountain Bike Festivals are held each spring and fall at The Wedge Overlook located southeast of Castle Dale, Utah.
From the beginning, the Festivals have been geared to a wide-range of mountain biking enthusiasts - from the novice to the seasoned; from the occasional to the frequent; from the single rider to the family of riders; and from the rider(s) whose sole interest is the picturesque surroundings to the rider(s) whose sole interest is in the merits of the bike. Rides vary in degree of difficulty, each offering a different perspective of the beautiful San Rafael Swell. There really is a ride for every interest.

Each race is limited to the first 500 entrants. Please avoid race-day registration, we may have room for you, but there is no guarantee of a finishing medal or shirt if it is 2-weeks before the race. We will order extra, but it will be a first-come, first-serve basis.
