"The Ironton Railroad is heavily endowed with remains of historical structures. Iron caused the initial heavy industrial development of this region. Huge blast furnaces operated in the area and required massive amounts of coal, iron ore, and limestone.
Immediately you encounter the first historic building, complete with beautiful arches and a strange cement veneer. The ride continues onto the fork and passes many more structures and an old rail car. Following the right spur, you skirt many housing developments in Hokendauqua before heading north along the Lehigh River. Along the riverside stretch, you pass many more historic structures, including an old iron railroad bridge. Highlights: tons of historic sites and buildings, old quarry, fish and view wildlife, playground, great family ride. Tread: cinder-covered railroad grade, grassy woods road, and a short stretch of paved trail."
