From Pittsburgh, PA take I-376 W to the exit (60A) for US-22 W/US-30 W toward Weirton. Continue onto US-22 W/US-30 W for approximately 15 miles. Please note that US-30 W diverges from US-22 W after approximately 4 miles. Stay on US-22 W. Take the exit for PA-18 toward Florence/Burgettstown. Turn left onto PA-18 N and travel approximately 5.5 mile to the small parking lot at the trailhead. The parking lot is on the left and there is a small sign near the entrance.

Short but interesting hike to the mineral springs. Varied terrain, creek crossing, some elevation gain, lots to look at.

Great trail with some scenic spots. Easy hike with only 1 or 2 hills worth noting. I'd definitely recommend it!

Great, short trail. Took the dogs today. It was neat and the springs and falls are cool.

Some nettles along the trail so watch for those.

This is a great little loop trail in Raccoon State Park that leads to waterfall and a mineral spring. As of June 2017 the trail was still a little muddy in spots, had a blown down tree the park routed around, and had a few sections of overgrowth but nothing that wasn't manageable. Good hike for most people of all skill levels and younger kids alike.
