Beautiful winter hike. Took about 2.5 hrs since the trails are mostly crusty and sometimes slippery ice. Had the trails and the quarry to myself today most of the day, didn't pass another person until I was leaving out. Wouldn't hurt to have a few more blazes otherwise great hike.
There are so many amazing things to say about this trail!! We did the complete 4.1 mile loop and loved it. It was steep in places and narrow, but it was beautiful throughout the hike. The views of the mountain are breathtaking. The bridges are different and fun. The rock quarry is amazing!! Our pup hiked a lot of it, but also caught a ride in her papoose for the uphill hiking. We loved it!! Oh, and a bonus was that my husband saw 4 wild turkeys!!!
Awesome hiking trails! I agree that it needs to be marked better. We've done the East loop twice so far-it's a great workout-not for someone who can't climb narrow, steep trails though. We're going to brace the West Loop next time, which is supposed to be much more difficult. These trails are not for young children-you'll end up carrying them which would be very difficult! Beautiful views and raw landscape!
Wonderful trip to the old quarry. Climbed the rocks and had a great picnic.
