Very rocky terrain, with some steep hills to climb. Definitely would suggest good foot wear and go on a day when the ground will be dry and solid. Also, make sure you pay attention to the blazers as there are some sudden turns and places where the trail veers off into two which can be confusing.
Eve T. on Quarry Rock Trail
Really nice, amazing view and lovely nature/rivers along the way. Is pretty steep at the beginning , but has walkways / stairs so isn't difficult!
Only thing for me personally is how busy it is. On a sunny weekend there was a huge amount of people on the top of Quarry Rock and was noisy from large groups of people and families.
A bit of a drive to get to Palmerston but well worth it . Make sure to check out the railway museum . This is a beautiful trail out in the middle of nowhere . The northern end is not finished and will end you in a farmers field , still very nice . Back in town there is a nice restaurant on the main street . A good days outing , highly recommended ! K
