Hike the Coal Mining Heritage Park and Loop Trail

675 State Route 657 - Search Nearby - Added by Rae Smith

Interesting Artifacts and Beautiful Nature

This is a part of the Huckleberry Trail (which is paved), but off of it is the dirt hiking/walking trail loop. It is a really fun area to explore, and the parts that are on the Huckleberry have plaques with historical information on it which is all very interesting. It also has a beautiful wooden path/deck. Coal Mining Heritage Park is closest to the parking/entry area near Merrimac, but it is only a mile or two from the entrance behind the NRV mall.
