ANCHORAGE — A track from a three-toed dinosaur believed to be about 70 million years old has been discovered in Denali National Park, the first evidence that the animals roamed there, scientists said.
The footprint was found June 27 by a University of Alaska Fairbanks student taking a geology field course.
The fossil is 9 inches long and 6 inches wide, officials said.
The discovery's importance was its location in Interior Alaska, far from the coastline where other tracks have been found, said Anthony Fiorillo, curator of earth sciences at the Dallas Museum of Natural History.

I'm sure someone or something would mess it up within 70 million years
I would think their would be layers of new rock/sediment on top of it after 70 million years
Seems like a fake.
don't see that to be a footprint. The toes rise up
now how can an age be defined by a footprint?
it is my understanding that you realy can't reliably date either rock or things made from rock
