Essex Quarry Grand Opening

Champlain Area Trails is hosting a Grand Opening Celebration of the Essex Quarry Nature Preserve on Saturday, September 18 from 10:00 am until noon.

The day will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and then a self-guided hike through the preserve.

It will feature Taylor Haskins playing his unique style of music as you walk around the quarry. Plus - there will be free food and refreshments graciously supplied by Essex Eats. We'll even have activities for kids!

We ask that you sign up in advance so we can gauge how many people will attend. Please park at the ferry parking lot, in downtown Essex, and on School Street. The Quarry's parking lot will be closed off. To sign up, click here!
