We will park at Mead's Quarry, cross the road, climb Tower Trail, pass a huge white rock, descend to river level, then enjoy the recently-rebuilt River Boardwalk. Then it's up narrow rock stairs, back across the road, and up to Keyhole Quarry and maybe the Crag. There's an option of Tharp's Trace for the return. Bring water, snacks, and lunch. Poles recommended—not a hard hike, but some steep places and wet leaves. Meet at 9:00am at Mead's Quarry near bathrooms. Hike: about 5 miles.
