Freeport Conservation Trails are all around town. One of them encompasses E. B. Mallett's former granite quarry. There are sheer granite cliffs along the 'Quarry' section of the trail.

Hiking notes: this trail is a loop of 1.5 miles. Very uneven ground throughout the whole trail. One steep section midway through and another steep section at the end (only if you get to the trail from the school). Short section off main trail to get to quarry. Trails are marked with white, blue and green blazes. Check out the school projects along the trail!
Wildlife: I've seen game birds, woodpeckers, robins, chickadees and nuthatches as well as squirrels (red and gray) and chipmunks. (But I make a lot of noise, so I probably scare most wildlife off!)
