Quartz Mountain TrailsTwo hiking trails are located near the park office. The New Horizon Trail, a rugged 1/2 mile path, explores the habitats of the mountain and takes the hiker 3/4 of the way up the mountain. Many scenic views of the surrounding countryside can be seen and photographed along the trail. Another trail takes the hiker along a 1/4 mile wooded bottomland stream path where bird and animal signs are abundant.

Quartz Mountain Resort Park Wildlife Viewing

Quartz Mountain Wildlife Viewing
Quartz Mountain Park forms a great rocky nest: a buffer zone between the eastern and western United states sheltering a variety of species of plants and animals from both regions. Huge turkey buzzards circle in the air columns over the mountains, and deer graze along the roadside. The bobcat and coyote can be seen, as well as the rare ring-tailed cat and the great horned owl. The American Bald Eagle winters at Quartz Mountain in large numbers, and white pelicans, osprey and Canadian geese all migrate through the area each year.

The park's fascinating geological history dating back millions of years provides a real treat for hiking and geology enthusiasts - the highlight of which may be climbing 1,950 feet high. It is excellent for rock climbing and rappelling, but bring your own climbing and rappelling equipment.
