Stone Quarry Hill Art Park is a little gem set in the hills of Cazenovia, just off historic Route 20. It is an outdoor sculpture park, with permanent installations, guest artists, a gallery, and gift shop. The Hilltop House is a unique piece of architecture designed by the park founders, and is where the park offices are located. There are also a total of about 5 miles of hiking and snowshoe trails, which vary from the wheelchair accessible gravel Vista Trail to the new, rugged Watershed Trail. The Link Trail runs through the park, and connects with the North Country and Finger Lakes Trails. A great hike on a nice summer day would be to hike on the Link Trail from the village of Cazenovia to the park, have a picnic lunch, and walk back down the hill to town. There are blue trail markers on Route 20 in the center of the village, which lead down Chenango St. to a trailhead and parking lot. Round trip from the village is about 5 miles. The park hosts events, too - the Kite Festival this summer should be awesome.
There's a reason there are windmills located nearby! Cazenovia artist Dorothy Riester, and her husband started the park as a non-profit organization in 1991. They operate on donations and grants, and a $5 donation box is at the entry. You can also become a member. Check out their website for more! www.stonequarry.com
