The Night Hike will be on Saturday, August 9th, this is an opportunity to explore the Landmark after dark.

The hike is a 3 mile long loop along a well maintained dirt trail. There is a spot where you can turn back after a mile and cut the hike to 2 miles. 

It is in the northern end of Yellow House canyon so there will be some rolling terrain but mainly it is level walk in the park.

The hike takes about an hour and a half, starting at 8:30 p.m. and finish around 10 p.m.

Lubbock Lake Landmark is a unit of the Museum of Texas Tech University.

It is an archaeological and natural history preserve that is famous for the discovery of a Folsom point which is a spear head used by people 12,000 years ago to hunt ancient bison.

The Landmark is located at 2401 Landmark Drive in Lubbock, Texas
