Not a lot to see but still a historic site. It's best to read up on it before going so you fully understand its historic importance.

It is incredibly sad that there isn't a museum of some sort. My kids were so disappointed. This could definitely be a family friendly tourist attraction for Cochise County. It was very disappointing. The sign is missing. It might as well not even exist. I read up on it from my phone during our visit. It is such a shame... More

This is a small brick monument, nothing more. No river access (Private, gated and fenced), no restrooms, reviews that say otherwise are referring to other places in the San Pedro Riparian Natural Conservation Area - and NOT Lehner. I'd recommend trying San Pedro House first.

They have some nice dirt tracks to follow with information boards along the walk. It is mainly paths and crevices in the ground. There really are no mammoth bones to see, although there are spots where there is some digging being done, which for the visitor is not allowed to do. Nice walk through a dessert area to see the...

This may have been interesting at one time but all that is there now are a couple of plaques in a very small area -- less than a half block's worth. If you just like to get out in the fresh air and not do much walking, this might work for you. Sometimes you can catch some interesting sky but... More

The sign shown for this destination is in tatters, no where really to walk there because quickly see private property signs.

I was on a volunteer team cleaning trash from the riverbed near this site, or I never would have gone here. There is nothing on the fossils but the monument you can see in the photos. Even the ranger did not know where the bones and spearheads are housed, and answered "Probably ASU" when I asked. It is hot and... More

The Lehner Mammoth Kill Site is contained within the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area. A gravel road leads to a plaque that was erected near the spot. There is no trail or interpretive signage. You have to climb a barbwire fence to reach the site. If you do climb the fence, you must scramble up and down steep, thorn-bush... More

The site is very interesting. You get a lot of history and some geology too. From clovis Indian culture mammoth kill site to a unique layer of black particles visible in the banks of the wash in certain areas. The black particles are thought to come from a meteor impact and it contains micro diamonds. It is free and a... More

No sign off of Moson so watch carefully for the small brown sign. It's a nice little walk, so bring water.
