“Experience sweeping views of the Atlantic coast, tide pools, and a typical granite quarry once used in the 19th century.”— Amber Scott
This run heads around the quarry in a counter-clockwise direction, though variations are possible and all trails can be traveled in any direction.
From the north side of the quarry, find the wide spur that continues north toward the shoreline where you'll find sweeping views across the ocean and north along the Massachusetts and New Hampshire coastlines. On a clear day, visitors can spot Mt. Agamenticus, 80+ miles north in York, Maine. Beware of shifting rocks and observe all signage.
Loop back around the quarry or head out in a different direction to explore more of the surrounding area before returning to the Visitor's Center and the main parking area.
