Description

There are some great steady hills on this road. But it's useful to link up to other trail networks. There's a muddy section at the bottom of the lake that is crossable by some driftwood.

Old Coal connects Warwick Turnpike to Cherry Ridge Road, making a nice loop.

Flora & Fauna

Look out for bear prints!
