At a distance of 2.5 km from Sardar Sarovar Dam, 4 km from the Statue of Unity, and 9 km from Kevadiya Railway Station, Dino Trail is an educative park situated near the Valley of Flowers in Kevadiya. It is one of the must-visit tourist places in Kevadiya, especially for people who are traveling with kids.

Recent excavations in the Narmada valley, have revealed that Rajasaurus Narmadensis, a species of a carnivorous abelisaurid theropod dinosaur, was existing in the Narmada valley during the Cretaceous period or 'K-period'. The K-period spanned between the Jurassic period (145 million years ago) and Paleogene Period (66 million years ago). The bones of these species were excavated from the Lameta Formation (a sedimentary rock formation found in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Maharashtra, India) in the Gujarat state of Western India, probably inhabiting what is now the Narmada River Valley.

The Dino Trail is home to a replica of the endemic dinosaur with a distinctive horn. Measuring over 75 feet in length, and 25 feet in height, the replica is about 3 times the estimated size of the original dinosaur. The positioning of the sculptures is in such a way that one can feel the presence of these extinct formidable beasts at this place. A nature trail amidst the forests of Vindyachal takes you to the Rajasarus Narmadensis and a treasurable moment to relive the primeval era when these colossal beasts used to roam in the prehistoric woodlands of Narmada valley.
