Description

The Dam Trail is an intermediate to advanced level trail. It has some really nice views from a short ridge top, and follows along the bank of Mud Creek. The trail passes the site of the old Williams & Owens Forge. There are still remnants of the box dam in the creek that once provided air blast for the furnace powered by a water wheel.

The trail connects to the Iron Works Loop, with the entrance and exit only about 30 feet from one another. It also is easily accessible from the Iron Runner Loop. The trail is only a couple miles long, but feels much longer. It will challenge your balance and slow-speed bike handling skills.
