Extremely steep and unsanctioned trail found deep in the woods close to Quarry. Use extreme caution when going down this trail. Some erosion along trees as well as loose rocks and dirt, likely from the 2013 flood.

Access Info

From the second switch back on Quarry, instead of going right, go left onto the fencing and where the bridge leads. Up the steps and onto another trail. From there use the map to locate the exact point of the trail.


Unsanctioned trail, use extreme caution.
