Prehistoric Trackways Hike to Site Flood

Interested in paleontology? Geology? Have you attended the Prehistoric Trackways Guided Hike to the Discovery Site, but want to see new places within the Monument? Then join us to learn about the abundant marine life and to see petrifed wood and plants. Prehistoric Trackways is a world-renowned site

for paleontology, find out why!

Be prepared to hike approximately 2.5 miles on rough and rocky terrain while learning all about Las Cruces's climate and the organisms that inhabited the area, 280 million years ago! Leading the hike will be the BLM paleontologist, Colin Dunn!

Bring plenty of water and appropriate footwear and attire to hike on rough and rocky terrain. You will find us in the big, 2nd parking lot of the Monument. You can arrive at the Monument by heading west from the intersection of Shalem Colony Trail and Rocky Acres Trail. Then in about 1/4 mile take a dirt road on the left labeled as Permian Acres.

See you then!
