“A moderately-graded gravel path leading to the Nuttallburg coal mine site.”
— Hunter R
While the Headhouse Trail's grades may be strenuous at times, its short length and access to fantastic historic sites make for a worthwhile hike with children.
Travel down the Headhouse Trail for a peek into the ins and outs of mining at the Nuttallburg
coal mine site. Enjoy the rusting remains of a once bustling coal mine, taking time to visit the multitude of displays explaining day to day operations at Nuttallburg
, as well as the coal extraction process. For a grander Nuttallburg
experience, make your way down the Conveyor Trail
and discover the remnants of Nuttallburg's coal processing plants and adjoining town.
