Description

This is a short hike with a rewarding view. The eastern leg is the steeper and more rocky section. Up near the overlook there is a millstone that was abandoned many years ago when this area was mined and quarried, which makes for an interesting stopping point.

Millstone Trail's namesake. The guidebook says it was abandoned here in the 1800's after it cracked while being quarried.
