“A fun way to get to Coal Knob from either direction.”— Frank Maguire
Family Friendly This trail is a little challenging but the unique features and fun descent will make up for the rocks.
If you are riding from the parking area, Coal Knob starts out pretty flat until it crosses FS Road 610, the trailhead for Cornplanter is on your left. Then, it begins to climb noticeably, with several rock features forcing you to work a little extra. As you get closer to the top, there are several built rock causeways that might look intimidating but are actually very easy if you pedal smoothly and hold your line. Once you get on top, you are treated to a cool section of eastern slickrock. After you roll off the back of the Coal Knob, you begin dropping through twists and turns all the way to the intersection with Longhouse Trail and Elijah. The trail terminates at FS Road 610 where you can continue on to Tuttletown.
