Dinosaur tracks have been reported from at least nine localities in Hood County, Texas. All tracks occur in the Glen Rose limestone. The vertical range of the tracks is very limited so far as present studies go. Locally, the tracks are known as "bird tracks". One locality near the county seat, Glen Rose, was described in 1917. Recently a superb dinosaur track was taken from the "fourth crossing" of the Paluxy River about six miles west of the town of Glen Rose and placed by the citizens of the community in the base of the bandstand located in the court house yard. This track is one of the largest known from the area and is remarkably well preserved.
