Diane Gabriel was a resident paleontologist of Glendive in the early 90's.  Unfortunately she fell victim of cancer leaving a void in the paleontology of Makoshika. The trail was named after her.

Dinodave was personally mentored by Diane. Dave would show Diane all his favorite locations and in return asked Diane a myriad of questions and could not be more thankful for all her generosity.  The trail leads to an amazing articulated sandstone cast of a Hadrosaur tail.  There are a few other surprises that Dave knows about along the top of the trail also.
