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.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
