Rock Furnace TrailCamel Rock on Rock Furnace Trail

The Rock Furnace Trail is a short (a mile and a half one way) trail in southern Armstrong County that is part of the Roaring Run Watershed Association system of hiking and biking trails. This trail follows Roaring Run back into its ravine and takes you past historical sites (parts of the Old Pennsylvania Main Line Canal from the early 1800’s, and the remains of an 1830’s charcoal iron furnace), and through a rich forest ecosystem dominated by maples, yellow birches, beeches, young oaks, and slowly growing hemlocks. It is a glorious place in the spring for wildflowers and a wonderful place all year round for enjoying the seasons of the natural world.
