About Bolton Quarry:

Old limestone and granite quarry in rural Bolton. Nice scenic location amidst trails and a historic site. Place needs LOTS of cleaning and developement. Just discovered it a week ago. Trails are rough, rocks are loose in places, poison ivy is everywhere, but its worth the effort. Its small and circular with a little pond in the middle (not getting in the way of belaying) with some great looking routes that if developed and cared for, the place may become popular.
Nearest town or city: Bolton
Directions: Drive 117 West into Bolton (next to Stow, Maynard, and Lincoln) about 1 mile and you'll see parking area on right. No rates, hours, nothing. You'll see map showing locale of quarry (and a sign discouraging climbers!). Hike in following directions on map.
