Note: Users have reported that this trail is on the golf course's property. 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 can handle 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. Tours of Linden Hall are only available to groups of 25 or more.

Lovely trail, but it appears that you can no longer access it through the golf course at these coordinates. Posted PRIVATE PROPERTY signs at the trailhead.

A nice little hike over mostly uneven gravel with some remnants of an old road that must have once been active. Took several wrong turns as there are really no blazes or markings to guide you, but you can find your way over the bridge, the train tracks, and down to a little spot on the river by following the map. Lots of beautiful wild flowers and a few nice vistas. With a little maintenance and clean up this could be a great trail.

A little rocky but pretty easy going down to Yough from Linden Hall. It is not paved, a few ruts, mostly gravel and dirt. Bc you are going downhill no real problems if you are in good shape and w/o knee problems. Coming back up is a decent workout, not for anyone with health issues. It’s only 1 or 1.5 miles one way. ATVs, horse riders also use this trail. If you want a really good workout continue on road up and around the Mansion. It’s another good incline to add onto your trail hike
