It's time to take a hike, but after dark.

Lubbock Lake Landmark is one of Lubbock's great treasures that unfortunately is not visited enough by Lubbock locals or by visitors. It's actually a great place to visit and even go on walks and hikes through the different trails.

This summer you can experience the Lubbock Lake Landmark like never before with Dark Night Hikes.

The first of these hikes after dark will take place on Saturday, June 24. The hike will begin as the sun goes down over Lubbock at the Nash Interpretive Center at 8:30 p.m. The hike will be about 75-90 minutes long and the parking lot will close at 10:15 p.m. according to a Facebook post on the Lubbock Lake Landmark page. They will offer different types of hikes.

1. Nature Trail, long loop -- fast-paced 3 1/2 miles long.
2. Nature Trail, short loop -- moderate 2 1/2 mile long with the opportunity to learn about the nightlife of a mixed grass prairie.
3. Wildflower Trail -- ADA accessible 1/2 mile long boardwalk for a leisurely stroll with rest areas.
4. Archaeology and Wildflower Trails -- Learn about the Landmark's 50 years of continuous summer field research, envision the past, and experience the Yellowstone Draw.
5. Hike on your own.

Lubbock Lake Landmark will also hold night hikes throughout the summer on July 29, August 26th, and September 23. Each month the start time is different as you can see below.

So do something different and go for a night hike at one of Lubbock's great places.
