Hike the Quarry Loop Trail

2.4 Miles Round Trip - 40 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Quarry Loop Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Allison Herreid

A great hike alongside the Kettle River rapids. Also a fantastic way to see abandoned quarry buildings.

The Quarry Loop is an easy hike in Banning State Park, which draws its name from the abandoned sandstone quarry you pass along the way. The trail's rival attraction is the whitewater of the Kettle River, visible as you hike, including the Blueberry Slide, Mother's Delight, and Dragon's Tooth rapids. Accordingly, this also makes the park a popular place with canoeists and kayakers.

Informational Self Guided Trail

The self guided trail has numbered markers along the trail that point out the otherwise obscure interest points. At one end of the loop there is a spur trail the goes further along the river. This was the best part, a little more difficult to walk as the terrain is more variable but worth the effort!
