Description

The Furnace Quarry Trail, marked orange, does not make a complete loop but connects the South Trailhead to the old Furnaces near Folsom Bridge. This is an advanced level trail with a rocky textured tread that winds up and over the ridge where the stones were quarried for construction of the Furnace.

Lots of rocks as the last fellow mentioned; it might be a bit more fun going from the furnace down down to the museum. Rhythm was poor. 1mi
