Trip Reports

Sunday September 24, 2017 Millstone quarries hike by Steve and Heather Bailey

A flurry of people signed up for this trip in the final days prior to the hike. We had three extras and five cancellations on the morning of the hike, which left us with 24 hikers. We split the group in half, with each of us leading one group. We hit the highlights of the area: Grand Lookout, Sunrise Lookout, and Holy Ghost Lookout. We were entertained by many young men jumping and diving from heights of up to 60 feet! The weather was sunny and in the 80's, but the cold granite piles made for refreshing breezes. After the hike several people stayed for a swim and a short paddle in a kayak in the Wells and Lamson quarry.
