Name that Trail: This trail is designed especially for people with visual or physical disabilities and is designated as a National Recreation Trail. The trail passes by a quarry pond, which now supports a variety of animal life. A short spur off of the trail takes hikers to the top of the granite outcrop, where they can explore the maze of giant elephant rocks. A second spur brings you to a point overlooking an old quarry site, where Missouri red granite was quarried from the 1860s through the early 1900s. Don’t know the answer?
