Coal outcroppings, historic beehive coke ovens and riverside parks. The rail-trail between Dawson and Connellsville features nearly a mile of beehive coke ovens along the hillside and outcroppings of the Pittsburgh coal seam.

Great overnight camping trip with my oldest son and his friend from West Milton to Ohio Pyle on Yough River in '99.
