Hiking with the dogs at Castalia Quarry Metropark

Get your wild boar meat on the way back 

We finally had a gorgeous spring day a week ago so we grabbed the dogs and headed over to hike the Castalia Quarry MetroPark (map), an old limestone quarry made into a park.

They have about 4 miles of trails (accessible by foot, mountain bike and rugged wheelchair), a cool lookout tower and natural ponds. Everything was still pretty brown when we were there – I bet it’s gorgeous in spring, summer and fall.

There are some structures remaining from the old quarry, including these strange metal things. The quarry operated from 1870 to about 1965

Frosty Frog drive-in

Stop at the Frosty Frog

On the way back to Port Clinton, we stopped off at this tasty little drive-in for ice cream. They also have burgers and other drive-in type food. I got a dreamsicle float that was quite yummy.
