Just a little muddy but the snow has been melting so it makes sense, otherwise a great short trail!

Really nice short wooded loop, with some local history, perfect for a lazy afternoon stroll. Trail is well maintained and you could get away with regular tennis shoes. Loop also crosses the Huckleberry Trail, so you can mix up pavement and trail for some extra cardio. The boardwalk is a nice touch and parking is plentiful.

Good trail, narrow, easy for everyone- quiet, with few people on the trail.

Beautiful trail but littered with glass on coal miner’s loop. Can’t walk animals and be careful where you step.

Nice, casual walk around a wooded path with some small creeks along the way. Close to town and easy morning activity!

Very nice walk through the woods right off of the Huckleberry trail! It is well kept and mainly in the shade.

This was a nice surprise. I was glad to see a nice meandering trail in the woods just off the Huckleberry. this trail had some good elevation changes, but nothing to difficult; were hooked this as a family with a 5yo and a 10yo. There were a couple of wet weather spring crossings and a small creek on the return portion of the loop. There were also a couple of geocaches along this trail.

This trail was okay, nothing special. It was a short walk and there were a few small streams you passed. A little bit muddy so be careful. My boyfriend was particularly fascinated by all the coal and the mine.

Many leashed dogs on the trail. Some historical signs along the way. Not a lot of scenery but nice woods walk. Right side of trail has some good elevation change that may be hard for some. Shady party somewhat muddy but nothing that couldn’t be avoided by stepping off trail.

Not many interesting views, though there's a few signs and remnants of some old mining buildings. A lot of leaves on the ground so watch your footing. Easy connection to the Huckleberry.

First to Review

The loop trail is good for a stroll through attractive woodland. A few relics of the mining years are scattered about, or maybe it’s just junk. At any rate, it’s a pleasant walk.
