Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument debuts first Temporary Trail

LAS VEGAS –

Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument launched its first recreational trail: the Aliante Loop Temporary Trail. This 3.25 mile loop is suitable for hiking, leashed pets, and biking, and features five virtual interpretive stops highlighting the natural history of Tule Springs Fossil Beds. The trail offers year-round scenic views of the Las Vegas Range and geologic features of the Monument, and wildflower blooms in the spring. The trailhead for the Aliante Loop Temporary Trail is located on the east side of North Aliante Parkway and Moonlight Falls Avenue. 

Temporary trails are a way for new National Parks to plan for the future. The Aliante Loop will help gather visitor use data and rare plant data from participation in citizen science. Founded in 2014, Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument will continue establishing recreational trails as the formal park planning process moves forward in the coming years.
