Hike to Dibble’s Quarry | October 6, 2022

October 6 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

   Dibble’s Quarry was in operation until sometime around the late 1800s, and it is said that some of the bluestone quarried there was used for sidewalks in New York City. Long abandoned, this lonesome mountain of rock shards in the middle of nowhere has fantastically transformed in recent years.

No one knows how it came to be – whether built by one person or many persons, over a summer, over many years – but thanks to these anonymous artists, the mysterious rooms, thrones, benches, fire pits, and even a sort of spiral staircase feel as if they could have been part of the landscape for centuries. And for all we know, perhaps they have. Great hike for kids !!
