Saturday September 22 2018 Millstone quarries hike by Steve and Heather Bailey

Seven people participated in a hike of the Millstone quarries on a day which started out cold and windy but warmed up considerably as time went by. We hit the high points of the area: Grand Lookout, Sunrise Point, Holy Ghost Lookout. We found that someone had cut down dozens of trees in an attempt to prevent people from swimming and jumping off cliffs in the quarry by Sunrise Point. They had completely blocked many of the nicest viewpoints, even putting up barbed wire in one location. Fortunately we were able to get by the fallen trees to at least get out to Sunrise Point.
