The state park lies on the old Sugarite (pronounced Sugar-eet) Coal Mines and the foundations of much of the old mining town can still be seen. However, if you are hiking to the top to see the coal mines (which the signs seem to indicate is possible), you will be disappointed. The mines are caved in and there's nothing to see but signs pointing to where the entrances used to be. One day this might be restored into an amazing recreation of a turn-of-the-20th-Century mining camp. As a history guy, I thought it was pretty cool. My wife... not so much.
