Birdsboro quarry is a neat little place to climb if you like short sport routes. The approach is an easy ten minute walk from your car. Its a popular area with a fairely extensive history. On any day with nice weather you will usually find a few parties using the area along with hikers. The difficulties range through the whole spectrum from easy to very hard making it a place where beginners and experts alike can find a challenge. The rock quality varies from place to place and helmets are recommended.

Nice hike. The park seems abandoned altogether, but still nice. To get to the actually quarry with the rock cliff: cross tight rope, walk towards abandoned house and follow paved road just beyond house, cross second tight rope and bear to the right, just past the abandoned barn you will find a sign regarding rock climbing, follow upper or lower path to reach the quarry. The lower path takes you along the lake.

Nice spot at Hay Creek but we couldn’t do the hike because several of my kids were too short to climb across the cables above the creek. Since it was a cold November day, we couldn’t go through the water either so we had to call it quits.

This place is very scenic and it has some cool wire bridges. A lot of friendly rock climbers as well.

Great 3.5 mile hike. Love the tight rope you have to cross to enter the trail. Def a unique thing to see and do on a hike. Multi terrain trail that has some minor elevation changes and a couple of nice things to see. Didn't like the spray paint everywhere but other than that it was a great hike with many intersecting trails into the woods. The big pond/lake would be an awesome place to grab lunch. Saw some rock climbers which was pretty cool

Took my kids and their friends there today and they had a blast!! They love that you have to walk on a rope or go into the water to get to the other side. Def a great day!

Beautiful scenery. Great for a challenging workout or easy stroll through wooded trails.

I love climbing and hiking here. There's a nice challenge before the quarry that takes you right to it by crossing Hay Creek just after the bridge and climbing up above.

Beginning spring. For beginners the rope crossing across the stream is the best way to start and saw Lots of rock climbers. Really nice place, need some trials to be marked.
