The half-mile walk around Quarry Lake offers lovely views of the 26-acre, 50-foot deep limestone quarry water surrounded by 100-year-old white cedars. The terrain is undulated oftentimes skirting the edge of quarry walls affording an up close view of limestone outcroppings. Look closely at the jagged landscape to see markings dating back to as recent as the quarry-era and as far back as the last glacier. Visible are the fissures and fossils. Because this park is located along the Mississippi Flyway, bird watchers tend to congregate along this rim trail in hopes of obtaining sights of the spring and fall migrants. Several trails spur from Quarry Lake Trail leading to parking areas and beachfront.
Directions: From Port Washington, WI, Travel approximately 10 miles north along I-43. Take Hwy. D east for 1 mile to the park entrance. Trail access is available from both parking areas.
