There was a Quaker quarry at one time off of Holt Run Road off Rte 280 about 1/2 a mile before the Quaker Lake spillway. They used the gravel and sand to build a lot of concrete piers steps and flatwork throughout the park. The Quaker Naturalist programs in the summertime some 20 years ago used to take park patrons there to find fossils. It's easy to find. Go from the Quaker Lake spillway out of the park. On the right side is Holt Run Rd. About a 1/2 a mile down on the left there is a road that switches back a bit with a yellow bar gate. Walk up and past the gravel washing station a short distance in and it ends at the quarry. Enjoy & thanks for watching!
This video shows the demolition of the Red House Dam. At this point holes were bored and grout injected to stabilize the base of the dam and new 24" drain pipes were grouted in with new shut off valves installed. The top layer of the dam is being removed and precast sections duplicating the old architecture will be placed anew on top of the dam once the top layer is peeled off. Good weather has aided the project. Thanks for watching!

Although I've posted a tour of Taft before, it just received a new half bathroom. The park regional carpenters took about 4 feet out of the big back bedroom and put in an entry door off the kitchen. It has a nice lavatory with cold running water now too. Thanks for watching.
The new Boyer Bridge just past the Red House toll booth. This is also the gateway to a great new hiking trail that hooks up to Conservation Trail. Hope you enjoy the video! This is my 200th ASP Video!
