"Hone Quarry is a popular recreational area just over the hill from Hidden Rocks. Here you’ll find a few crags worthy of breaking out the ropes; however, many local climbers visit the area with bouldering on their minds. If this is you, pick up a copy of Lester Zook’s Climbing Rockingham County, which includes detailed information on bouldering at Hone." Read more

On this trail you pass beautiful scenery and the view on top is great. However, it is almost straight uphill for a few miles. But the ride down is great.

A trip along the trail beside the stream feeding Hone Quarry Lake is easy backpacking back to the pond, only 3.6 miles in. You can go furhter. The camp sites are good and water abundant. Occasionally a truck taking out dead fall for firewood is there but does not detract from the experience. You can skirt the stream crossing if you go slightly east of the stream to a low ridge which follows the wash out line from the stream. Come off this ridge and drop into the camping area at the confluence of two or three streams. You need to keep looking over the edge of the wash out cliff to find this point. Do not go more than 0.3 miles on this line. Not fording the two stream crossings in cool weatehr is a good idea.

I ride this about once per year. The road has not been gated for many years and is a popular four-wheel-drive road up to the top of the mountain. The surface has gotten rocky and gravelly over the years, but this is still a nice ride.
