Description

Quarry Park & Nature Preserve is an old quarry in Stearns County near St. Cloud. It contains about 17 "routes" that are between 20-30 feet tall. It is a Stearns County Park and has its own guidelines for climbing which can be found on their website at co.stearns.mn.us/1450.htm#Rock

Registration is required to climb and there is a fee to use the park. Quarry park also has some swimming holes which are fun when the weather gets too hot to climb.
