Geology site description:

In Uiseong more than 300 dinosaur footprints can be seen at a roadside. The footprints were created in the lower Cretaceous period and are 110 million years old. The footprints are preserved in a river deposit (gray sandstone and red claystone) of the Sagok Formation.

The site is located along the road and is freely accessible. A glass roof was built  to protect the footprints. The tracks occur in four different horizons. There are traces of Sauropods, Theropods and Ornithopods.
