At Smith Granite Quarry located in Vermont, you can try their INSANE guided quarry tour that is almost too epic to handle. You can see the turquoise water as you dangle from the cliffs and create memories that will change your life!

The tour lasts about 40 minutes, rain or shine, and it takes you to an overlook of the most stunning views! It is believed that Smith Granite Quarry, at nearly 600 feet deep, is the largest operating deep-hole, dimension granite quarry in the world! Plus, in 2008 their tour program went "intergalactic" when a portion of the exciting car chase scene for the 2009 Star Trek movie was filmed at Smith Quarry.
