Quarry beach is approx. 10 miles from the Homer harbor, on the opposite side of Tutka point from Kayak beach. Anchorage is marginal, due to the deep water. Quarry beach yurt sits about 30 yds. from the rocky shore that was historically used as a loading area for stones removed from a nearby quarry. This yurt is protected from the day breeze by Tutka point. Suggested trips: This is a great place to launch kayak trips to explore the more protected waters in Sadie cove and around Hesketh and Yukon Islands. Low tide will expose shoals and beaches, and give you places to rest. The N. end of the Grace Ridge hiking trail is easily accessible from this site and if you arrange ahead of time with your water taxi, you can make a quick stop at the Quarry beach, leave your camping gear at the yurt, return to the boat and get dropped in Tutka Bay at the South Grace trailhead. The hike from S. to N. on the Grace trail is one of the most beautiful day hikes in the park, with old growth forest near the water and outstanding alpine views as you climb towards the summit (~ 3000’). Look for ptarmigan, marmot, and possibly mt. goats and black bear.
