Mysterious monolith appears on hiking trail near Las Vegas – sparking wild speculation about where it came from

A mysterious metal monolith has appeared on a hiking trail near Las Vegas, leaving officials baffled as to how it got there.

The mirrored monolith was found near Gass Peak, about 25 miles from Sin City by Las Vegas Metro Search and Rescue.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Officials confirmed the object was found on the popular hiking trail last weekend.

They posted about it on Facebook, along with some images, writing: ‘We see a lot of strange things when people go for walks, like not being prepared for the weather, not bringing enough water… but look!’

The post quickly received more than 1,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

Many commentators joked that it had landed from space.

One Facebook user mused: ‘Maybe it’s a portal that goes to another location.’

Another commenter joked, “I don’t care what it is…but can someone go there and pray about it or something…ask for our rent to be lowered.”

Although the LVMPD considered the monolith a “mystery,” one commenter wrote in response, “It’s not ‘mysterious.’ Someone built a truck, put it in, drove it over and set it up. It does not matter.’

The strange-looking metal plate is one of many found around the world in recent years.

In late 2020, dozens of similar-looking monoliths popped up across the US, Britain, Canada, Romania and beyond, often before eerily disappearing.

The silver structures in Britain were found in Glastonbury, Cornwall and the Isle of Wight.

More recently, a 3-metre-long monolith was found on a hilltop near Hay-on-Wye in Wales.

Richard Haynes, who took photos of the structure while running in March, told WalesOnline he initially thought it was a scientific instrument.

He explained, “I was heading towards Hay Bluff, where the trig point is, and looked to the right. I thought it looked a bit bizarre and might have been a scientific media study collecting rainwater.

‘But then I realized that it was much too big and too strange for that. Then I went there and it was at least ten feet tall and triangular, definitely stainless steel.

‘It was hollow and I think it was quite light. Light enough for two people to lift and plant in the ground.’
