We loved our exploration along this trail. Some work has been done to display the history of the mine, and there are several remains of the old mine still intact. You can feel the cold air from a couple of mine openings, can see the remains of an old coal car, and there is signage to help explain some of... More

The 2mile trail was fun to walk and adventurous. Visiting the remains of the town gave insight into what life was like back then. We didn't get to walk the stairs due to a rainstorm but it was worth it seeing stuff at the top.

New River National River trails are great fun in and of themselves. But in the case of the Kaymoor Miners Trail you can really challenge yourself by exploring the 821 steps leading down (almost) to the river. This is an aerobic workout the likes of which you will not find at any gym. Breathe in the fresh mountain air as... More

Nice walk in the New River Valley with some old remains of a forgoten town. Best time to visit is in the fall of the year when the trees all start to change color.
