About This Trail

[Total: 1    Average: 4/5]

Located just outside of the old mining town of Leeds, this trail can be found off of FR032 on the west side of the I-15.

The trail is a short, toddler friendly, well groomed path that goes from a parking lot to an old coal smelting kiln from the late 1800s.

This historic building looks like a rock beehive and is easy to reach with little legs, however, don’t expect to use a stroller because there are some up and downs and a bridge to cross. This is more of a hiking trail.

Bring a picnic and enjoy lunch under a shady tree.

To find the trail take the Oak Grove Road toward Yant Flats out of town. This will turn into FR032. At a Y, take the right and keep going along on FR032. Once you cross over Leeds Creek, look for the parking lot on the right.

About The Guide

Hike it Baby Family Trail Guide is an online resource to help families with children source trails that little legs can hike and parents can feel comfortable with. Hike details are sourced and have been hiked by families who participate in our community. Our contributors do their best to give you all the details they can, but if something is missed, you can reach out to the contributor and offer suggestions for them to add to make it a better trail description for all. This guide was built with a generous 3-year partnership with L.L Bean. Like Hike it Baby, L.L Bean believes that helping get families into nature from birth on is key to healthier, happier communities.
