“Paleozoic Era footprint in Las Cruces!”

The Prehistoric Trackways National Monument was established in 2009 to conserve, protect, and enhance the unique and nationally important paleontological, scientific, educational, scenic, and recreational resources and values of the Robledo Mountains in southern New Mexico. The Monument includes a major deposit of Paleozoic Era fossilized footprint megatrackways within approximately 5,280 acres. The trackways contain footprints of numerous amphibians, reptiles, and insects (including previously unknown species), plants, and petrified wood dating back 280 million years, which collectively provide new opportunities to understand animal behaviors and environments from a time predating dinosaurs. The site contains the most scientifically significant Early Permian track sites in the world.

This was a little harder to find. It is still very undeveloped and there was not much to see except for the boards they put up.

Not a single sign to this location on the road. This location on this site will not get you to the preserve. We did not find any tracks. Only thing this stop is good for is hiking trails.
