Description [Edit]

Sunny spot in an abandoned limestone quarry. It hasn't been mined since the '70's. Most of the walls are very flaky, but there are a few chunks of limestone that are climbable. The base of both quarry sections are littered with 4-8' boulders that are all climbable.

If you are into archaeology, this is a great place to find fossilized shells, sand dollars and coral, as there are fossils in almost every rock you will find out here.

Getting There [Edit]

Anywhere along Elko Road, entering the woods from the East side. Approach is less than 400 yards. The second (rear) quarry is just a few hundred yards east of the front quarry, through the wood line.

Hey boss! It is private land owned by Georgia Limerock. It is occasionally visited by a hunter or two during deer season. Oct 2, 2016
