A unique trail around an abandoned quarry has a wealth of crystals hidden in the rocks for intrepid geologists to find! This is a wonderful quarry in Topsham where those fascinated in minerals and geology can find some amazing crystals. When you walk into the site you'll see by the multicolored rocks in the area that it has a lot to offer the curious mineralogist.

I was trying to find the Cathance River Trail and my GPS took us to the Quarry Loop instead , it was a nice walk I liked the Marsh and a lot of cool rocks and black Mica

A once great swimming hole. Still beautiful scenes but the water is very dirty with a lot of rubbish. The walk itself is fun, but a lot of loose gravel and stone can present a challenge to the unaware. Not maintained and some areas are tricky to ascend/descend. Overall the views make it a worthwhile stop if your in the area can easily be done along with the Cathance river trail, about 1/2 mile apart.
