Visitor Center & Trails
Our visitor center is the first place you will stop at the site. Purchase tickets or gift shop items and get information about our trails.
Follow paths along the property to see pits where gravel was once mined to expose layers filled with extinct megafauna and stone tools.
Keep in mind that New Mexico summer temperatures can be brutal for even the most seasoned of visitors. Bring water and take your time as you walk the property.
