VIDEO | Conoy Township’s white cliffs now open to public

 

These “cliffs” were created by the J.E. Baker quarry that once operated just inland  from the river and whose flooded depths are now a popular scuba diving destination named The Bainbridge Sportsmen’s Club. That land is still privately owned but some of the donated Frey land does extend east towards the quarry. I would be careful on these cliffs though as they are not actual bedrock but waste material generated over the years by the quarry that has settled and solidified into a relatively hard substance. But it would be wrong to assume that this material is as structurturally strong as the actual dolomite that was mined at the location.

This new area will be a nice stop along the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail that extends from the Columbia River Park in Columbia to Falmouth.
