PROTECTED! Gold Butte National Monument

Gold Butte is Nevada’s piece of the Grand Canyon, and it is a treasure trove of cultural, historic, and natural wonders. Located between the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Gold Butte covers almost 350,000 acres in southeastern Nevada.


Gold Butte’s wonders include thousands of petroglyphs, historic mining and pioneer-era artifacts, rare and threatened wildlife, dramatic geologic features like red sculpted stand stone and rock spires, and fossil track-sites dating back 170-180 million years ago.
