This is a fun ride to unusual historic structures. The ovens were used in the early 1900s to make coke, a clean-burning fuel used in blast furnaces to produce iron ore. Coke was made by baking a mixture of different kinds of coal at high temperature without contact with air. After an exciting trip through Box Canyon to the start of the trail, you’ll begin climbing and descending a series of rocky ridges, many offering outstanding views. Intermittent challenges leave no time for boredom. Take time to inspect the remarkably intact Coke Ovens, but make sure to leave them exactly as you find them and please don’t leave any trash behind. The two big ledges after the ovens should not be attempted by novice riders.
