The Quarry Trail at Forbes State Forest in Rector, Pennsylvania is a moderate 2.2 mile out-and-back hike that leads from the edge of Linn Run State Park and up to the nearby mountain ridge. The trail starts out in an old quarry, which lies along the trail about 100 feet into the hike. The remaining quarry isn't all that interesting, but you can see the lines in the rock where the miners carved out the mountainside.

The hike heads uphill the entire time before you reach the ridge of the mountain. On the ridge, the trail flattens out, but can be very wet and muddy during the Spring, late winter, or after a heavy rainfall.

Camping: Dispersed camping, or primitive camping, is allowed on this trail and in other section of Forbes State Forest. Please check out their main site for more dispersed camping information.

Note: This trail is longer than the 2.2 miles out-and-back recorded here, but we did not track any further than 1.1 mile one-way in. The trail continues running through Forbes State Forest before hitting a trail junction and roads about a mile or so further from where this data stops. For more details, check out this Forbes State Forest trail map PDF.
