Take a Walk on the Wild Side
The legacies of frontier life, coal mining, quarrying and railroading can be found along the rail-trails. The rail-trails were once the regions’ busiest highways, carrying coal and coke, glass, sand, limestone and other items to distant markets. Now you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in Marion County by exploring over fifty miles of trails.
