I looked at the links you guys gave me and found this site the problem is that I dont know if it's open to the public. 3 websites said yes, 2 said no, and 1 said I have to buy a permit. This site is located in New Jersey and is known as Roseland Quarry, Riker Hill Fossil Site, and Walter Kidde Dinosaur Park. At this site you can find different types of dinosaur footprints. here are some pics of the site

I'm pretty certain that one is closed. If footprints are all you're after, there are other locations in both NJ and CT that yield footprints.

I don't, no, as tracks aren't really my cup of tea (not when there are mosasaur bits and shark teeth calling for me). But there are some members here who go for them, so hopefully one of them will chime in.

The Riker Hill Site was registered as a National Natural Landmark. For many years, the public was allowed to collect fossils at the site, but now access to the site is restricted. Trust me the last thing you want to do is get caught collecting there. Very hefty fines and possible jail time.:o
