Event description
Super Quarry Hike-Duration 2 hours. Length 2 miles.

About this Event

In 2012, the San Bernardino County Museum scientists were exploring an area where a few fossil bones lay on the desert floor. This find turned into a months-long excavation, which yielded a family of 3 mammoths and the longest tusk (11 feet) found to date on the Monument.

You will see the quarry site, additional fossil bone being exposed at the site. On the way out you will experience the geology of a natural cavern and other amazing formations which your guides will explain in detail

This hike is moderate, over rough desert terrain with some small hills.
