Castalia Quarry Reserve

Average Rating:    (2.75 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

Old abandoned limestone quarry turned State Park. Its a great ride, easy, not too many steep climbs...very relaxing. Just watch out for peds walking. Look hard for the singletracks...they are awesome (old motocross trails). Has a great overlook of Sandusky Bay and Lake Erie from observation deck...can see for miles in all directions. Watch out for the edges, its a long way down!!!

Summary:
It's a quarry. Always good stuff if you look long enough.

Recommended Route:
Go to the top of the quarry on the side oposite the entrance. There are some good chutes that are full of drops and huge rocks. Also, the side by the entrance has some good cliff drops and jumps. This place sucks for x country but is ok for freeride/breaking yourself runs.

Summary:
Coming from the Mountains of NE Georgia, the Quarry is really a let down. The single track is very limited and the bottom is too sandy for speed. It is the best option is the area, but not a good one.

Recommended Route:
If your going to do it, the loop is really all there is.

Summary:
the quarry is a nice ride with nothing real technical.the scenic view is great beware of people walking and park rangers i had to have special permit to ride there.ranger had me fill out papers and mailed me my permit cost was free.I would recomend it to people who can ride slow to watch out for peds and dont want too hard or too long of a trail

Recommended Route:
i usually go across the street do the loop around the quarry then ride in the middle for a bit.when crossing back across the street to the parking lot there are some trails that lead from parking lot

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
Its a great trail. I recommend it to anyone starting off, or to anyone sick of riding in the dirt. Great for taking the kids along for the ride.

Recommended Route:
Do the loop, then go down into the middle for some fun.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Quarry butts up against Resthaven Wildlife area...very scenic, but dont go during hunting season!!
