On this day we parked at the Quarry Rd parking lot. We took the Quarry Trail to High Knoll and had lunch high above on a rock. The view was amazing! There were also tree frogs that were quite friendly. If you're not a frog lover don't fret, they were well hidden. We then back tracked and went down to the Mid-Marsh Trail and over a bridge to the Lodge. Don't forget to look up at the rock and see where you were earlier in the day. After a rest and a bathroom break we re-tracked our steps back over the bridge to the Mid-Marsh Trail and left to the parking lot. The signs are great and it is pretty easy to find your way. Happy & safe trails!
