We love to hike, and this is a great place to get your exercise in while experiencing neature. The lower portion of the hill has a pond and a large paved walkway if you don't want to be too challenged. Heading up the hill can be easy or challenging depending on which route you take. We almost always find some new path when we explore here. It's also big into the Geocaching and Pokemon Go, if that's your thing.

Fun for families. Hikes, fishing, learning about nature.
You can check out kits to learn about birds and insects. The kids always like going

Quarry Hill is a small nature center on the eastern outskirts of Rochester. They have numerous walking trails, rock climbing, a frog pond, cave tours of the man-made caves that were used by the State Hospital for food storage, and will usually bring in a prehistoric event every spring. They also have regular courses and activities throughout the year.
