Sandstone Quarry

Sandstone Quarry

The rock faces at Banning State Park still bear the scars from the black powder blasting that workers did in the 1890s to harvest stone from the living rock. We went on a 1.8 mile (self) guided hiking tour to learn about the quarry. The town of Banning sprang up and then died with the quarry.
