This certainly seemed like an interesting park, but ranger led tours are only 10 AM and 1PM and your explorations are limited to the tours.
On Sunday (?everyday) there is only a single ranger working, so the visitor center is closed when he is leading...More
We were pleasantly surprised in visiting this park they offered a ranger guided tour.It was an approximate 2 mile hike to the quarry site & the ranger was full of knowledge & insight aboutbthe history.
We took the two hour guided tour of the Alibates quarries and were delighted with the experience. Ranger Carl B. was knowledgeable, sensitive to our hiking abilities, and had a great sense of adventure and fun. The visitors center is small but informative. We also...More

We arrived late in the day, so we didn't get to take a tour, but we still got a real flavor for the place. This is where native americans got flint for a large portion of the United States. You really feel like you are...More
