As you travel through the Hagerman Valley, you will realize the diversification of this magical land. Trout farms, tropical fish research centers, alligator farms, watermelon fields, hot springs and fossil beds are just a few of the amazing things you will discover in the Hagerman Valley. Niagara Springs State Park, along the 1000 Springs Scenic Route, offers year-round sport activities, bird watching and photo opportunities. The springs shoot out of canyon walls at 250 cubic feet per second. Beyond the park, Crystal Springs Lake offers picnic areas and fishing. Visit the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument Visitor Center located in the town of Hagerman. Exhibits include fossils over 3 1/2 million years old. Guided tours are available from June through September.
