“A relaxed singletrack along the historic rail line once connecting Keeneys Creek to Nuttallburg.”— Hunter R
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
Gaze in wonder at the scale of construction that took place in this area over a hundred years ago as you head across trestle bridges built to create manageable grades for steam-engined trains.
Upon approaching the famous Nuttallburg coal conveyor near the western end of the trail, keep your eyes peeled for slag (a byproduct of coal production) blanketing the ground near the conveyor, paying tribute to Nuttallburg's rich mining history.
