Description: Beautiful old marble quarry filled with fresh, clean water. Lots of cliffs to jump from. There can be over 100 people here in on a hot summer day, but Dorset Quarry is big enough to handle a large crowd. Very popular and well-known local swimming place. This is a must see if you are anywhere near the area. You WILL have fun here. There are a few, very interesting sculptures carved into the marble. See how many you can find. I found three. Private property but the quarry owners allow public access. Swim at your own risk.
Directions: From Manchester, on RT 7 in south western VT, take RT 30 northwest. The quarry is on RT 30 on the right as you are going into Dorset at the intersection with Kelly Road (dirt). Do not park on RT 30, rather, pull onto Kelly Road heading north and park on the left side of the road. There is room for many cars here.
