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.
