Elizabeth Furnace Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This Elizabeth Furnace Recreation Area has two interconnected nature trails that present a splendid overview of charcoal production and iron making in 1800s Virginia, all in a gorgeous setting along Passage Creek, nestled between Massanutten Mountain and Green Mountain near Strasburg.

The short walk is long on interpretive information and you will get to see the iron-furnace remains up close, as well as a cabin from the 1830s. Plan on adding picnicking, trout fishing, and car camping to your historic hiking agenda—it is all here at Elizabeth Furnace."
