Former road to a Tudor-style mansion. (1 mile) In 1913,Sarah Cochran, widow of coke and coal pioneer Philip Cochran, built a Tudor mansion, Linden Hall, north-west of Dawson and used the Mansion Road to travel between the two. The road has deteriorated and been blocked to vehicle traffic to become the Stone Bridge Trail. The trail surface itself is broken asphault, concrete and gravel. It's not too bad for someone on foot but only mountain bikes could hande some of the steep grades and rough surface. Round trip is 2.5 miles and can be done in about an hour. At about mid-way, there is an overlook that gives a nice view of the Youghiogheny River valley. I went about mid-October when the fall foliage was at it's hight. Tours of Linden Hall are only available to groups of 25 or more.
