South Mountain Branch-Pine Grove Furnace
May 2002


Near Hunter's Run, the South Mountain right of way is part of the Appalachian Trail.

Between Toland and Pine Grove, this landowner has a real sense of the history of the area. The rails are right on the railroad right of way.

While in the Michaux State Forest, the right of way is a bicycle path.

Near the entrance to the Pine Grove State Park, the right of way crosses the highway. The road sign reads "Old Railroad Bed" .

Laurel Lake. Near the top of Piney Mountain is Steeple Pool Rocks.

Pine Grove Furnace.
