Overview

Description

The Furnace Quarry Trail, marked orange, does not make a complete loop but connects the South Trailhead to the old Furnaces near Folsom Bridge. This is an advanced level trail with a rocky textured tread that winds up and over the ridge where the stones were quarried for construction of the Furnace.

more than just a rock pile....this one loses the trail, again....and again...and ...well, you get the point. And if someone says it was an easy straight uphill (downhill) they were not riding the singletrack Furnace Quarry Trail. You could get lost on this one and never know it until you were well into the next county...best to ride this one from the Furnace back to the parking lot. In Summer you might have to do a bit of bushwhacking too. Sep 24, 2014
