About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This is a beautiful, rocky out and back trail that leads to an old abandoned coal burning furnace, the only remaining structure from a small coal mining community. The trail starts off downhill and winds through a beautiful West Virginia hardwood forest and ends where the furnace is, along with a winding stream to throw rocks and dip feet in and two foot bridges. If hikers are looking to log more mile, Henry Clay Furnace connects to two other trails in Coopers Rock Forest Trail System.

Hike it Baby Trail Guide is managed by the Family Trail Guide team. If a trail has been “abandoned” by the initial owner, it gets adopted by the team. Also, if there are no trails in the area, the Family Trail Guide team researches trails that are family friendly in the area to insure that hikes cover all areas where Hike it Baby hikes.
