Prehistoric Trackways - Discovery Site Guided Hike

Come join us, Saturday, Feb. 18th, for our monthly guided hike to the discovery site! Despite the questionable weather, we had an amazing time on last month's hike!!!

As usual, there will be 2 hikes included...

- 9 AM (English hike)

- 10 AM (Spanish hike)

Be prepared to hike approximately 3 miles through the monument while learning all about Las Cruces's climate and the organisms that inhabited the area, 280 million years ago! Leading the hike will be our district's very own paleontologist, Colin Dunn!


Of course, don't forget to bring comfortable shoes and plenty of water.


See you then!

    Roughly how long does the tour last? Is it the full 3 hours?

      Thomas, we departed from the discovery site last month at approximately 11:30 am, if that helps.

      It takes 15-20 min to hike back to the parking lot.

    For the first time visitors to the monument, there was some previous concern b/c the map on the page does not take you directly to the monument's parking lot, it only led you to Shalem Colony Rd... Well, it has been fixed!

    The map will take you directly to the monument. We had a lot of members RSVP last month's hike, hopefully the number will go up again!
