We just walked out to the grand overlook but even in the 1/2 hour it took to get there we passed signs giving the history of the quarries.

When in the Northeast Kingdom this is definitely a place to check out. Relatively new, this touring center provides endless miles of trails and vistas in what was an area formerly designated for quarrying.

This place rocks! Best mountain biking in the area. From beginners to serious mountain bike enthusiasts, Millstone is the place to be. Awesome views from scenic lookouts and historical interest (the touring center winds through abandoned granite quarries) mixed with great cycling make this a must-visit if you bike and are going to be in Vermont.
