Hone Quarry Ridge Tr Professional Reviews and Guides
"A scenic out-and-back ride that very gradually climbs up to a small spring-fed pond. Along the way you'll pass Hone Quarry Lake and, as you near the pond, you'll travel through a forest of really big hemlock trees. The ride back is all downhill. Highlights: Easy grade, lake, stream crossings, springs, pond, gated road, large trees"

"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."
--Eric J. Horst and Stewart M. Green, Rock Climbing Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland (Falcon Guides).
"A lightly used paved road takes you all the way to the top of Shenandoah Mountain and the state line before depositing you on Hone Quarry Ridge. On top, you'll find downhill double track through high meadows leading into a section of smooth ridgetop singletrack. It all ends with a nosedive descent. Highlights: Pavement climb, Briery Branch Reservoir, waterbars, views, steep downhill, smooth single track"
