I don’t have much information about this town-owned preserve, and I am not sure what the plans are for developing walking trails here. As of spring of 2017, there is a glorious quarry pond that looks like it might be a destination for swimmers, cliff jumpers, and rope swingers in the summer, and an old road on which you can walk through some blueberry barrens. Past the barrens, you pick up a snowmobile trail. There’s a little path around the quarry as well.
Directions: From Route 1, turn onto Depot Street and go about .7 mile. You’ll see a sign for Quarry Hill on the right. You can drive up the dirt road and park near the quarry and pond.
