At the edge of the quarry of Adornas(sw and n)

The trail you are following dips into the quarry here. If you continue down into the pit, you will lose your view of the surrounding area. The town of Adornas is not far to the north. The River Adorn is no longer visible to the south; the curve of the land blocks your view of it. The quarry dominates the landscape from this point. You can either head north back to town, or southwest into the pit.
The only obvious exits are southwest and north.
