GO TO PARK

TRACK Trail

Quarry Trail

49104 Morrow Mountain Road, Albemarle

This trail, approximately 0.6 mile long, is one of the Kids in Parks TRACK Trails. Brochures with a variety of activities for children can be found at the trailhead. This trail also goes by the Civilian Conservation Corps' (CCC) rock quarry, which supplied many of the rocks used to construct the park's buildings, curbs, and walls during the Great Depression. Rock exposed by quarrying and erosion offers insights to the area's unique geologic past. Dragonflies and frogs now take advantage of the small pond formed as a result of rock quarrying.

Upper Cascades Trail

1790 Hanging Rock Park Road, Danbury

This trail begins at the west end of the visitor center parking lot, located at 1005 Visitor Center Drive, at the wooden handrail. The trail immediately crosses Hanging Rock Park Road. The trail starts out asphalt and turns to gravel after passing the intersection with Rock Garden Trail. A wide, gently sloping trail leads downhill to a wooden observation deck with seating for safe views of the tall, burbling falls. A set of wooden stairs takes adventurous hikers and dogs to a shallow catch pool at the base of the waterfall.
