We had a really good day trip here and throughly enjoyed the experience. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Very interesting facts taught along the way. I'd highly recommend it as a day trip for fellow bikers, just beautiful traveling in Vermont if you haven't been already. Nice to have this as a destination!

From Our Editors

Rock of Ages is named after its signature rock: granite, one of the most ancient types of stone on earth. In the company's quarries, which scatter the globe, workers extract high-quality granite, raw material that craftsmen then carve into structures from mausoleums to monuments.

Smith Quarry in Vermont doubles as an educational center. During quarry tours, groups see the stonecutters in action, wielding sandblasters and cranes capable of lifting 250 tons—equivalent to 450,000 pints of ice cream or 487,000 pints of ice cream with all the nuts picked out. There's even an outdoor granite bowling lane, which visitors can try for free, as well as on-site sculptures working with diamond-tipped saws and laser equipment.
