This is an off-the-beaten path stop. Tours are guided-only and you can purchase tickets in advance online (I believe ours were $15 PP). There is a brief introductory movie, a small museum about the quarries, and a one mile guided hike. It was a beautiful and interesting place to visit. I suggest bringing a walking stick to the uneven terrain and rocky stairs. This is not a tour for small children or strollers.

June 6. It was so nice to get out and actually do something! We went to Quarry Gardens in Schuyler (pronounced SKY LA by locals), Virginia, south of Charlottesville.
This is the private property of Bernice and Armand Thiebolt that consists of several abandoned soapstone quarries with the surrounding landscape that is being restored with native plants and woodlands. There is a mile long trail that winds around two of the water filled quarries.
Reservations are required to keep tours small but there is no cost. Donations are greatly appreciated! I hope to visit several times a season to see the changes.
Our group of nine was led by Bernice and she was knowledgeable about the plants and environment and she was excited about new discoveries.

Simply beautiful! Forty acreas with a one mile trail, native plants, wildlife, bridges, views of the quarry pools that were mined between 1950-70, and overlooks. Film and displays in the visitor center. You can also get a guided tour. The only draw-back is that you have to call ahead of time to make sure someone will be there to let you in the gate. Free admission, but donations accepted. Wear hiking shoes and those who need to keep steady, I recommend a hiking stick, but the graveled path is very manageable. Benches are placed throughout the trail.

Our group had a wonderful guided tour of the natural landscape surrounding the abandoned quarries.

I recommend you call ahead for a guided tour. Also, you should wear hiking shoes. This is not a tour for toddlers or parents pushing strollers.

The tour is free, but we each gave a donation of $5.

The Quarry Gardens may seem a bit off the beaten track, but it's a place worth tracking down. Privately owned, it is open to the public, but you'll have to contact the Gardens in advance for a good opening time. There are some wonderful trails with beautiful views of the landscape. The guided tour (the only way to see it as a first time visitor) is led by the owners who are personable and well acquainted with every inch of the property. Allow several hours; there are beautiful benches with great views along the trails. Overall, it's a great way to spend a day outdoors.

If interested, Google The Quarry Gardens. It's a natural landscape / wild garden. The trail does have some small minor hills but very easy for all ages. Geared toward nature inthusiasts, conservation, or anyone interested in soap stone quarry or just a nice 3/4 day get away to experience something different. The tour guide / managers / owners request a $10.00 per person donation. Please drop a $10 in the box per person and do t be cheep.

A good friend took my husband and I to this site and we were stunned by its beauty. The founders have devoted financial and physical resources to extensively clean up and landscape the property. Two soap stone quarries are now vessels for pools of water surrounded by trees and plants native to the region. Pristine Walking and hiking paths bedded with wood chips make for a very nice experience in nature. A visitor building holds informative photos and information explaining the history and geology of the site and includes a small gift shop that sells handsome soap stone items.
A hidden gem worth a visit!

Wonderful place to visit to learn more about the history of soapstone mining in Schuyler and native plants, and to be outside experiencing an easy walk around a reclaimed quarry area. This is a work in progress...displays being completed, gardens and plantings being developed...but already interesting and worth seeing. Be sure to wear closed shoes, rather than sandals, as you walk on paths covered with wood chips. Slow pace of the tour allows for lots of opportunities to just plain enjoy the views!

We spent a beautiful afternoon walking the trails with a volunteer naturalist and learned a lot about native plants and the history of soapstone mining in Nelson County. The garden has limited hours so check their website.
