The site is a former quarry operation, which began in 1922 and operations ceased in the early 1940s. Today, the area includes a paved ADA walking track as well as picnic shelter, restrooms and park office. The quarry area features a sheer cliff face which is attractive for qualified rock climbers.

Outside the quarry area, the park includes hiking trails of approximately five miles which will take hikers along the top of the quarry cliffs and to the mountain peak. The trail will also include various markers depicting some of the rare plants which are located at the park.
