The tour of Rock of Ages was informative with a good view of the quarry and a very pleasant guide. However they didn't mention the absolutely amazing hiking trails maintained by the Millstone Trail Association which take you by multiple abandoned quarries. The Grand Lookout trail also winds near huge mountains of scrap granite, called grout , which are so large with deep reserves of ice and snow that the whole area is actually cold in the middle of the summer. It's one of the most incredible experiences we've had! The trails should be your first stop!!

We went with a group of Red Knights from all over the world. Seeing how the ideas go from a drawing into such beautiful works of arts was remarkable. The tour guide was knowledgeable about every aspect of the production that happens. The granite bowling alley was neat to see. It's a must for a visitor to see .

The quarry is a very interesting place to visit. There is a short film presentation that gives background information. Then, you take a bus to an observation area above the quarry. You get clear view down into the quarry and a very knowledgeable tour guide can answer any questions you have. Then, you go back to the factory and there is a viewing platform where you can watch the headstones being made. Ends with a visit to a very nice gift shop.
