Great trail! Difficult, but worth it. Bring lots of water and patience for the climb back out.

This was the hardest hike I’ve probably ever done just because of those stairs, but it was so worth it. I loved seeing all the historical sites. This is definitely a trail for someone who likes history like myself. Seeing the old mines and buildings was so cool and the signs around the area helped you understand what you were seeing. The waterfall at the beginning of the trail was great too! I’ll definitely be coming back again in the future.

Wonderfull hike! Went after some heavy rain and a few pretty waterfalls off the trails.

Did the Kaymoor Miner’s Trail first then this trail to get to the long point trail. There was a big tree down over the trail so had to veer into the brush but it was a good hike!

flows pretty nice

A few decently steep switchbacks before getting to the 821 stairs down but it’s worth it. The ruins are amazing. There is a fence up around the ruins because they’re unstable but you can walk around the entire perimeter.

Nice short hike, cool ruins to see. I would have rated it moderate, not difficult.

Beautiful trail! A lot to see.

Very rough.. I am 44 pretty good shape.. it took me 1 hr 5 min.. beautiful historic scenery. Was definitely a challenge.

This was super fun! Loved the old mine.

Hardest trail ive ever done.

Stairs!!!

One of my favorite trails. Sure it was tough coming back up all those stairs but the cool mining history you get to see at the bottom is very worth it.

Great scenery! Loved the old mine. Short but challenging hike.

Challenging hike but well worth it if your in the area. Beautiful scenery with an interesting bit of history mixed in throughout the trail. You start on the decent so save some energy for the climb back up!

Great flat trail. It was a bit muddy yesterday after all the rain. We didn’t get to see Red Ash Island but the coke ovens were cool.

Not a far distance but there is quite an elevation change. Loved seeing the upper part of the Nuttallburg Mine.

Timber Ridge is a short trail and meets at a fork to continue on the Fayetteville Trail (which my pictures show a bridge and Wolfe Creek). Timber Ridge is an easy trail and if you only hike it, should be about 1.7 (out and back). Great trail and easy for my wife and 3 kids. I highly recommend it!!

Very challenging trail, but awesome. Especially cool if you like history as the old mine operation is still there just left to the elements to shift and slide it. 1/2 hike down then 821 stairs to bottom processing area with railroad then. 250 feet of climbing down to river (may not be part of the trail). Took me just under 2 hours and I’m 23 and I’m moderate to good shape. Give yourself 2/3 of your time for the way back up. Also pack a solid snack for the bottom and at least 2 bottles worth of water. -Seth H.

My husband and I would recommend this trail for anyone up for a steady challenge. After conquering the 821 steps down and back up, we feel so accomplished and like it was certainly worth the strenuous adventure. Soon after starting the trail you will see a beautiful waterfall...it is even more beautiful on the way to the finish line. A bottle of water is essential on a warmer day (it was 80s on our trip) be sure to pack light. I am also glad to have worn sunscreen. Overall: difficult, beautiful, worth it.

VERY DIFFICULT, but I loved it the more because of it. 800 steps put the beating in a XC runner.

Great hike. Definitely recommend, but wouldn’t bring my dog if I came again, as he tends to pull. Also, for the chonky boys out there like me, “Hard” really does mean hard. I worked up a little sweat. Still....good times. Glad I did it.

There is great parking at the Short Creek lot and facilities. The cliffs and caves are amazing. The mine is very cool. It’s great we still have this to explore. The connecting Conveyor Trail to the old mine town Nuttalburg is very steep and difficult. Walking stick is a necessity.

Very difficult. Enjoyed the work out. 800+ steps. Beautiful waterfall and the mine, conveyer, tipple, and rail are great steps back in time.

Nice trail. Way better in the winter months as there is more visibility of the many interesting things to see and adventure around to include the coke ovens.
