Part of the Coal Creek Park trail system, this trail will take you along a creek with a few small waterfalls. This trail offers some of the best sites to be seen. On this trail you will follow Coal Creek while making a few crossings of the creek via wooden bridges. Along the way you will also pass by Sand Stone Falls, one of Coal Creeks tributaries. The Primrose Trail is named after a coal seam that was mined in the 1800's. While nature has covered up almost all traces of the mining activities there are a few artifacts that can be spotted along the trail.

10/7/2017 (Saturday) -- A section of trail from YMCL is improved. The trail along the Golf Club Rd is in good condition for easy walk, but rarely used. It is not marked on the map (AllTrails, OCM..). To get some fun, I like to opt for Primrose Trail along the creek, but it is still quite dry, not much water.
