This is a Kids in Parks Track Trail. It goes by the Civilian Conservation Corps' quarry which supplied many of the rocks used in the construction of the park. There is now a small pond located in the quarry. It is a good spot to look for wildlife.

A short loop that is good for kids. Look for frogs and other wildlife in the small pond at the former quarry. I had some trouble staying on the trail not far beyond the quarry (traveling clockwise) due to a recent controlled burn. I added a few tenths of a mile and ended up following the park road part of the way back.
