Alibates Flint was the rock that shaped - and was shaped by - mammoth hunter cultures in the Texas Panhandle for 13,000 years. The site was integral for survival, commerce and culture of the high plains.

The Quarry Trail is a Ranger lead hike. It’s not the most exciting thing but if you’re interested in early Americans and archaeology it’s fairly interesting.
