About Quarry Trails Metro Park
Metro Parks has turned an abandoned quarry into a recreation destination for Franklin County residents and beyond. Quarry Trails, the 20th Metro Park, is located within 5 miles of 350,000 residents, fulfilling a need for access to a park in this area and having a Metro Park within 5 miles of every Franklin County resident. Current amenities include trails, observations areas, a single-track mountain bike trail, a picturesque 25-foot waterfall, and lakes.
Located on the site of the Marble Cliff Quarry which was once the largest contiguous quarry in the United States it provided limestone for over a century that was used to build the Ohio Statehouse, roads, buildings, and many other places in Central Ohio. Funding for the park is a result of the generosity of Franklin County residents through their support of our tax levy and grants.
Several trails are open for walking, hiking, and enjoying the scenery and a mountain bike trail is open for adventure enthusiasts.
