I finished my day at Trough Creek State Park with this trail. It was neat ending with the cemetery after seeing the ruins of what those resting there built around the park. It’s kind of sad how most of the stones are unreadable and the forest has reclaimed the cemetery. I noticed a lot of the readable stones had the year 1830 in common, a plague perhaps? I also enjoyed looking at the ruins of Paradise Furnace and learning about 18th century iron smelting. An easy, quick hike!
