Perched atop the abandoned Castalia Quarry within the Castalia Quarry Reserve, this overlook deck gives expansive views of the surrounding quarry, forested landscape, and Lake Erie in the distance. It is quite uncommon to find such a commanding view so far west in Ohio, so this is a very noteworthy and must-see location.
