Alibates Quarries Tours

Ranger-guided Tours

The Alibates Quarries Tour has been canceled due to road construction.

After the center opens again, join a National Park Service Ranger for this unique ranger-guided tour. The program will cover geology, anthropology, ethnobotany, history, and natural history of this area. Alibates flint is unlike any other flint found in the world and was revered by ancient people for its sharpness and efficiency. At the top of the Canadian River Bluffs, there larger pieces of flint outcroppings hugging the mesas. The view is breathtaking of the Canadian River Breaks and the geological features of this area.

Trail Description: A moderate 2-mile hike consisting of a climb of 170 ft. in elevation. The guided tour takes 2 hours to complete and is not recommended for visitors with health problems. Please wear hiking attire and proper closed-toed shoes, preferrably hiking boots. No pets allowed.
