‘Mysterious’ Las Vegas Monolith Appears on Remote Hiking Trail

A mysterious monolith has appeared on a remote hiking trail near Las Vegas, and officials are stumped about how it got there.

Over the weekend, Las Vegas Metro Search and Rescue — a volunteer organization — spotted the mysterious monolith near Gass Peak north of the valley. LVMPD posted about the interesting and weird event on Facebook Monday.

According to the New York Times, this isn’t the first time that such a monolith has been spotted in the Las Vegas Valley. Back in 2020, a similar metal structure with three sides was found at the Fremont Street Experience in North Las Vegas.

And that’s not even including the monoliths discovered elsewhere. In March 2024, a man discovered a monolith in Wales. And, a few years ago, another three-sided metal monolith was found in a slot canyon in Red Rock Country, Utah.

It still isn’t clear where the monoliths came from or who put them there. There’s no direct link to other weird Las Vegas news, such as an alien supposedly spotted in a local backyard, but here at VegasNews, we’re not ruling anything out.

If you’d like to find your own mysterious monolith in Las Vegas, you can start by hiking around the valley’s local trails. Just remember to tell someone where you are going, always hike with a buddy, and pack plenty of water, food, and a first aid kit.

And who knows? A mysterious structure might just pop up at one of the best parks in Las Vegas.
