Murray Springs Clovis Paleo-Indian Trail

Description

    This 1-mile trail goes through the site of an important archaeological discovery--some 10,000 years ago early American immigrants, known to archaeologists as the Clovis hunters, dispatched and butchered Columbian mammoth, bison and other now-extinct ice-age animals at various points along a stream here. Access this site from Moson Road just south of Highway 90. The entrance, which is just across from the water treatment facility of the City of Sierra Vista, is a cattle-proof gate which leads to a parking lot. From there the trail is marked by interpretive signs.
