Description

Head down the Tipple Trail for a glimpse into the past of one of the nation's most historic mining towns. Founded in 1870 by John Nuttall, Nuttallburg was one of the first mining sites on the New River Gorge to produce "smokeless coal" - an altered version of coal produced through extensive heating in ovens and rapid cooling in the New River's icy waters.

Continuing down the trail, be sure to take time to view the crumbling remains of the turn-of-the-century coke ovens, club house, and town post office. Lastly, venture over toward an iconic feat of engineering and the trail's namesake: the Nuttallburg Tipple and coal conveyor.
