Thaddeus Stevens' charcoal iron furnace began operation in 1837. Through the course of time, much of the area has been developed into a recreation haven but there are remains of his heroic efforts as a famous abolitionist and statesman. The trail is short, offering views of waterfalls and access to the Charcoal Hearth Trail which leads deeper into the park's hunting territory.
Directions: From Fayetteville, PA, Travel 4 - 5 miles east on US 30 and turn left onto Pine Grove Road. As soon as you enter the park, you will see the Iron Furnace Monument. The trail begins from this area. There is also a trailhead along US 30 before the entrance.
Elevation: 500 feet
