Wonderful area to explore with a free guided tour from a ranger or volunteer. Whether interested in prehistory, geology, or nature, the guides are knowledgeable. I suggest you call ahead of time to get your place on the tour since they only give so many tours per day and you can't go to the quarry unguided.
Surprisingly fun. The guide was wonderful, just make sure you call in advance to make sure they are doing tours.
The area surrounding Lake Meredith is stunning for the Texas Panhandle. The Alibates flint quarry is a wonderful place for a day trip and is truly an escape. We love going.
These Quarries are ancient Native American Flint quarries. So cool a new dig will begin this year 2014 hope new discoverys are found.
