Wild West Dude,

I assume you're talking about the Dino Cliffs trail in the Red Cliffs Reserve. There's a map at the bottom of this link that provides a description of the trail. Dino Cliffs Trail | still_exploring

The dinosaur tracks/prints are located at the far west end of the trail. If you have a high clearance vehicle, I'd recommend you drive to the top of the west side of the trail (entry point is about 1/2 way between the 2 water tanks). From Exit 13, head north on Washington Parkway. About 1/4 of a mile, it will curve left sharply (turns into Buena Vista). Instead of following the blacktop, go straight onto the dirt road. You'll go for about 1/2 mile and then after you go down a steep section (houses on your left), you'll turn right and go up the road to the water tanks. Look for the Dino Cliffs sign about 1/2 way between water tanks (park there). The first 200 feet of the trail is a steep and sandy downhill section (that was eroded by the heavy rains last year). As soon as you get to the bottom of that section, look to your left for the dino tracks. Sometimes they are partially covered by sand, so you may want to bring a small brush to gently uncover them for better viewing.

Warner Valley also has some nice prints - you can Google.
