Hope you will have good brakes and a strong transmission, because the hill going down to the quarry and then back up to leave is quite steep. So bear that in mind if and when you go. Try late spring or early summer but bring warm clothes as it is super windy all the time there. Closed in winter, check the website for seasons and opening dates and hours.
