Finally made it to the quarry after many attempts fell short of getting there. We were looking forward to a nice hike in the woods to see some history. The gate attendants collected our ten bucks, then told us that there may be a party...More

The Becket Land Trust is a great place for families to take a 20 minute hike to the quarry. What magnificent views. We have been Land Trust members for years and enjoy it there. Hikers have many miles to explore. Enjoy. Ten dollar parking fee.

Excellent parking and great trails that are easy to follow. Nice place to go with family or friends for something different to do. Typical Flora and fauna for the Berkshires.

This is a great hike but I have to say, there is a lot of deviant activity around the trails... When your hiking up there is class alcohol containers broken, beer cans, and all sorts of trash.... It’s sad because as a short trail itself...More

This hike to the quarry was easy and a good combo of easy but with a slight incline. Perfect for family and any novice hikers but enough others trails I think for experienced hikers. Going to come back and check out the other trails soon!...More

January 2016 - No snow meant no xcountry skiing so we hiked to the quarry instead and it exceeded our expectations. We've been to a few quarrys before but this one has an actual trail with informative markers explaining the equipment left behind by the...More

Only had enough time to walk in to the quarry, haven't tried the other paths. It was a 15-20 minute walk up the main path, which is a slight uphill the whole way and somewhat rocky. (Watch your step!) The relics were cool and the...More
