Ranger-led quarry tours are not given during winter months.
All Ranger-led programs will resume April, 2019
During the season, you may visit the quarry sites by ranger-guided tour only. Tours are offered daily, as weather and staffing allows. See all of our Ranger guided programs at www.nps.gov/alfl/planyourvisit/rangerprograms.htm
Quarry tours typically take 2 hours and involve a moderate one-mile round trip hike. The trail to the quarries is covered in loose gravel and includes stairs. You will gain approximately 170 feet of elevation as you hike up to the quarry sites on the top of the mesa. Bring water and wear comfortable, sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes or hiking boots. It is often very windy on the mesa, so a jacket is recommended. You might also bring sunscreen, a hat, and a walking stick.
Please Note: This hiking tour is not recommended to visitors with health conditions including heart problems, breathing problems or artificial knees/hips.
