Special Tours of Restricted Areas at Alibates Flint Quarries

You can soon take special tours of areas usually closed to the public at the Alibates Flint Quarries.

They will open the restricted areas as part of Texas Archeology Month.

After a steep trip into the quarry, hikers will get a peek at village ruins and petroglyphs dating back to the 12th century.

They will hold the tours every Saturday in October at 2pm.

Only 25 people can go per trip, and reservations are required.

If you'd like to register, call the National Park Service at 806-857-3151
