There is a trilobite site right on the edge of town.  NW corner, if I remember correctly. Is anyone else willing to share the details?

Theres lots of fossils in Vegas, they usually hang out by the slots in the lounge around 3am.

There is a ruined monument by the Great Divide area, downhill a little is a Cambrian Shale outcrop. I don't believe Trilobite collecting is allowed in the Bright Angel Shale at the foot of Frenchman Mountain. but people do it anyway. Don't drive up the Mountain, BLM has a $10,000 fine for taking motorize vehicles up there.

I've heard of collecting at Railroad Pass, but have never been there.
