Trail shared by Kristen Arendt

A mostly mellow trail with a bit of a surprise at the end.

Description

Quarry Trail is actually a wide, smooth fire road that connects the Big Springs Trailhead on South Park Drive at the south end with the Quarry picnic site on Wildcat Canyon Road to the north. The trail is mostly a mellow, rolling climb as it contours along the ridge. It runs parallel to and then joins Lower Big Springs Trail. Don't get too comfortable though, as the short connector section from the Quarry picnic area up to the Seaview Trail is very steep.
