Linking Communities and History
Ride or walk through history as you travel the Coal and Coke Trail. Set on scenic old railroad corridors, the Coal and Coke Trail provides outdoor recreational opportunities for walkers, joggers, bikers, hikers, and cross-country skiers. The Trail provides a non-motorized, handicapped accessible transportation source for area residents as well as tourists, linking Mount Pleasant and Scottdale.
Along the way, enjoy beautiful natural areas and occasional wildlife while following Jacob’s Creek past old coke ovens and friendly communities. You’ll actually be following in history’s footsteps as you travel along the same paths as General Braddock, H.C. Frick, Andrew Carnegie, A.C. Cochran, and others.
There are future plans to also provide a link to the West Overton Museum and downtown Scottdale.
